One year after shooting, injured Aberdeen officer optimistic about returning to duty

One year after shooting, injured Aberdeen officer optimistic about returning to duty

Nearly one year after being ambushed around 3 a.m. and surviving a shotgun blast to his face that cost him most of the sight in his left eye, Aberdeen Police Officer Jason Easton, his family, his doctors and police chief remain optimistic that one day he might return to duty.

But that's still a ways off.

He said he's been through six or seven surgeries, has doctors' appointments sometimes as often as once a month and is focused on keeping his left eye stable.

"To keep it stable is how I'll regain vision in the left eye," Easton said.

He said he just sees "a little bit of light and shadows" out of that eye.
