FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOV.com ) – One of the officers that was shot during a protest in Ferguson has returned to work but the other has not been given a timetable on when he will be able to.

In the early morning hours of March 12, a 41-year-old St. Louis County Police Officer was shot in the shoulder and a 32-year-old Webster Groves Police Officer sustained one gunshot wound to the face while outside the Ferguson Police Department.

The bullet that struck the St. Louis County Police Officer was described as police as a through-and-through wound. Three months later the officer is back at work in a light duty fashion. Officials said it will be August before he is cleared to return for full duty.

The Webster Groves Police Officer, however, has not been cleared to return to work and there is no timetable for his return, officials said.

Twenty-year-old Jeffrey Williams has been charged with shooting the officers. According to police, Williams said the bullets were not aimed at the officers but were intended for someone else. Williams is expected to appear in a St. Louis County Court for an arraignment on Wednesday.
