Baton Rouge Deputy Making Great Progress After Being Caught in Ambush

Oct 11, 2017

The father for wounded East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Deputy Nick Tullier says his son is making remarkable progress. Tullier was seriously injured during a police ambush in Baton Rouge in July 2016. James Tullier says his son has been moved from a rehab facility in Houston to the Transitional Learning Center in Galveston, Texas, marking an important point in his recovery.

His motor skills are beginning to improve. James says his son is now able to make some small but important movements.

James says his son is continuing to beat the odds so much so that doctor’s predictions on the final outcome have long been surpassed.

Two other officers were injured and three more killed when 29-year-old Gavin Long of Missouri began shooting at officers on Airline Highway. Long was killed at the scene.
