A Salina police officer who lost sight in one eye after being shot says the support of the fellow officers and the Salina community has helped him recover.

Officer Chuck Huen was shot in late September when he and four other officers entered a home to investigate a possible stolen car and/or domestic incident. The man inside the house later killed himself in the basement.

Huen was hit in the right eye. He plans to get a prosthetic eye in early December.

During a charity flag football game Sunday in Salina between law enforcement officers and firefighters, Huen says he is progressing well.

The Salina Journal reports Huen is not sure what his future holds, but he's not worried because of support he's received during his rehabilitation.
