The Reno judge shot by a sniper two weeks ago says he's on the mend.
Judge Chuck Weller made his first public appearance today at a news conference carried live here on News Channel 8 this morning.
The judge looked remarkably well for a man who was shot in the chest two weeks ago.
He seemed to move a little slowly, his voice and breathing deliberately kept low key, but there was little else about Chuck Weller to indicate what had happened two weeks ago as he stood in his chambers and a sniper's bullet came crashing through his window striking him in the chest.
Weller says he believes there were at least two bullets. Fragments caused five separate entry wounds, each narrowly missing his heart. Two weeks later, he describes his condition as healing.
