South Sioux City Police Officer Brian VanBerkum is continuing to recover at home from a pair of gun shot wounds he suffered on May 11th.
VanBerkum was wounded in a confrontation with an armed suspect and was dismissed from the hospital on May 16th.
OC………..for healing. :11
VanBerkum continues to go to the hospital for treatment, and says it will likely be several weeks before he returns to duty:
OC………….see from there. ;14
VanBerkum received a hero’s welcome as he left the hospital.
Medical personnel lined the hallway, fellow officers waiting outside and then he rode in a caravan of law enforcement vehicles and fire trucks back to South Sioux City led by the Iron Pigs motorcycle riders:
OC……..very happy. ;08
VanBerkum says he appreciates everyone’s support and assistance as he recovers from his injuries.
The shooting remains under investigation by the Nebraska State Patrol and Dakota County Attorney.
