MOREHOUSE PARISH, LA (WAFB) -

According to KNOE in Monroe on Saturday, January 7, 2017, family members of Tyler Wheeler say Wheeler's brain scans show no damage.

A family member said via Facebook doctors are telling them the track of the bullet didn't do as much damage as first thought, but they are still looking over his other wounds and are planning surgery on his jaw, which they say was broken by one of the bullets.

Wheeler was in critical condition at LSU Health Shreveport, being treated for multiple gunshot wounds, including a wound in the head. Sergeant Wayne Parker Parker said they believe Wheeler was shot with a revolver.

Two are in for questioning after the shooting of Wheeler.
