NEW JERSEY (FOX5NY.COM) - NYPD Detective Dalsh Veve got a hero's send-off as he left the Kessler Rehabilitation Institute in West Orange, New Jersey, with his 3-year-old daughter on his lap and his wife Esther at his side.
Dr. Neil Jasey said that when Veve first came to Kessler several months ago he was in a "vegetative state" but now he can talk, eat, and walk with a rolling walker.
On June 3, 2017, Veve was investigating gunfire reports and started to question a teen suspect who sped off in a stolen car. Police said the car dragged Veve three blocks, but the officer managed to get off two shots.
The crowd of supporters for Veve included his fellow officers, Kessler staff, and representatives of the Haitian community. Veve, an immigrant from Haiti, has worn the badge for about 10 years.
While Veve continues his rehabilitation from home, the teen accused of nearly ending Veve's life will appear in Brooklyn Supreme Court in June on attempted murder charges.
