HOUSTON – East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Deputy Nick Tullier, the Livingston Parish resident wounded in a July 2016 ambush attack in Baton Rouge, remains in ICU today for treatment against pneumonia.

James Tullier, father of Nick Tullier, said in a Facebook post Tuesday that his son’s “chest is sounding a little better. O2 is better. Still some issues with CO2 retention.”

Doctors admitted Tullier into intensive care shortly before midnight Sunday due when tests showed pneumonia in both lungs, his father said in a Facebook post. He said Nick’s temperature was lower than normal, but blood pressure and heart rate remained stable.

Nick Tullier was one of six officers shot in front of the B-Quik convenience store July 17, 2016 in Baton Rouge.

He has undergone therapy in Houston since November 2016 and moved to a private residence in late 2017. He has since regained some movement in his hands and feet, and recently uttered the words “I love you” to his sons.
