ARNOLD, Mo. – A small piece of positive news for the family and friends of an Arnold police officer who was critically injured in a shooting earlier this month.
The family of Officer Ryan O’Connor said he remains hospitalized in critical condition, but his medications have been reduced and efforts to wake him could be forthcoming.
O’Connor was shot in the back of the head while transporting a prisoner to the Arnold Police Station on December 5. The suspect then shot himself and later died as a result.
