The pastor of a southern Minnesota police officer who was shot in the head says he is showing small signs in his fight for recovery.
Waseca Officer Arik Matson remains hospitalized in critical condition.
Matson was gravely wounded Jan. 6 as he and three officers responded to a call about a suspicious person roaming backyards in Waseca, about 70 miles south of Minneapolis.
