ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany Police officer, shot three months ago, has returned to work.

27-year old Officer Tim Harvey was shot on June 17th, when he tried to question a suspicious man on a bicycle on 8th Avenue. 18-year-old Johnny Hill was charged with that crime.

Harvey was hit in the lower abdomen and is still undergoing therapy, but he was able to return to work this week, though he isn't quite ready to hit the streets.

He's helping out in investigations, doing light duty, and will work his way back up to full time status.

Harvey says he still remembers every detail about that night. "The whole thing, basically. I remember from the very beginning. I remember the officers showing up. I remember seeing him for the first time. I remember getting put into the surgery room."

Officer Harvey has scarring from surgery and still has a lot of pain in his left leg. He still uses a cane for stability, as he has lost some muscle use.
