A Tulsa police officer seriously injured in a June 29 shooting continues to improve.
The Tulsa Police Department said Tuesday afternoon Officer Aurash Zarkeshan is now breathing on his own, able to communicate with his family and is strong enough to stand.
Zarkeshan and Sgt. Craig Johnson were both shot multiple times and in the head during a traffic stop. Johnson died the next day.
The accused shooter, David Ware, is being held without bond on charges of first-degree murder and shooting with intent to kill.
