TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

According to the president of the Tucson Police Officer's Association, the officer that was shot in the head a little more than a month ago has returned home.

Sgt. Robert Carpenter, 46, was shot in the head in November after he and several other officers responded to a residential burglary near Broadway and Alvernon. It was the second time that morning the alarm at the same residence went off. 

Carpenter will complete his physical therapy from home, according to TPOA President Bill Bonanno.

In a Facebook post, Bonanno said that Carpenter stopped into the midtown police station on his way home from the hospital. "Seeing Bob walk back inside the station was simply amazing," he said.

Bonanno also said that Carpenter "promised everyone that he would return to work within six months."
