ARNOLD, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

A chilling update has been provided on the battle a wounded Arnold officer is staging in the hospital.

Arnold police officer Ryan O’Connor was shot by Chad Klahs while inside a police SUV on December 5.

Jeff Roorda with the St. Louis Police Officer’s Association writes that O’Connor has gone through surgery and a medically induced coma.

Roorda says a priest was brought in while O’Connor was in a coma. As he anointed O’Connor with oil, the pressure on his brain subsided.

Roorda described what happened as “proof of God.”

O’ Connor remains in critical condition.
