Trooper Stone At Peace Officers Meeting

An East Texas DPS Trooper who was shot two weeks ago during a traffic stop, says he's recovering.

Trooper Steven Stone was at the peace officer's meeting in Tyler with his fellow officers. He says he came to the meeting to show everyone that he's all right.

"I'm doing much better than that night. I do still have some recovery ahead of me still. It's going to a little sore, painful trip but I'm doing much better," says Trooper Steven Stone.

Trooper Stone says he has a doctor's appointment at the end of the month to find out if he will need another surgery.
