A month after wounded East Baton Rouge Deputy Nick Tullier arrived at TIRR Memorial Hermann hospital in Houston, doctors talked about Tullier's rehabilitation during a Thursday press conference.

officials with the Texas rehabilitation facility said at a news conference Thursday, Tullier is aware of his surroundings, understands questions and commands, answers "yes" and "no" by moving his head, recognizes loved ones and can even read words.

Tullier arrived last month in Houston for treatment following severe bullet wounds and at least one heart stoppage after being shot three times by a gunman. Tullier was shot in an apparent police ambush in Baton Rouge in July of this year.

TIRR Memorial held a press conference Thursday morning which was streamed live on the WWL-TV Facebook page. You can watch the video below or by following the link.
