(Rochester, N.Y.) - The police officer who was shot in the back of the head has been moved to a rehabilitation facility as the teen accused of pulling the trigger is arraigned.
Officer Anthony DiPonzio is in stable condition at the brain injury unit at St Mary's Hospital where he will undergo extensive physical therapy.
Dr. Mary Dombovy said, "In St. Mary's brain unit, he's going to be very busy…as most of our patients are. He'll be receiving therapy, probably starting at 7:30 or 8 in the morning going until 4 or 4:30 in the afternoon. [He’ll get] a little break if he needs it, in the middle of the day, but it will be busy. It won't be at all like the time he spent so far."
Doctors say it's too soon to know how long officer DiPonzio will have to stay in the hospital.
DiPonzio was shot in the line of duty on January 31.
Tyquan Rivera, the 14-year-old, accused of the shooting, was arraigned in Rochester City Court on Tuesday.
A grand jury indicted Rivera on attempted murder and assault charges in the shooting
