BOSTON, Mass. (WTVR) - The Virginia Military Institute graduate who was injured in a firefight with the Boston Marathon bombing suspects late Thursday is improving and welcoming visitors.
Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis says the Massachussettes Transit Officer, Richard Donohue, is using hand signals to communicate.
Davis says, "he was in grave condition when he went to the hospital so we are very optimistic at this point."
Yesterday in Roanoke, Donohue was honored in a ceremony before a VMI football scrimmage game. A plaque was presented in his honor.
