The family of Waseca Police Officer Arik Matson, who was shot while responding to a call earlier this month, reports he continues to make improvements, though he still has a long road ahead.

Family posted on his CaringBridge page Saturday, writing that he was able to give a thumbs up, hold up several fingers and even give a fist-bump.

They also wrote that Matson is continuing physical therapy and is expected to undergo more tests.
