BIG SPRINGS, Neb. (AP) - A western Nebraska sheriff’s deputy who was shot four times in December by a suspect continues to recover.

KNOP reports (https://bit.ly/23lYFEq ) that Mike Hutchinson’s son, Zachariah, says that his father is off of dialysis and antibiotics, and he is walking on his own.

The Deuel County deputy was wounded Dec. 3 while trying to arrest a suspect in Big Springs.

Authorities said the suspect came out of his home and shot Hutchinson before he ever fired his weapon. Another deputy returned fire and killed 66-year-old Neil Stretesky.
