A Louisville police officer, who was shot Wednesday during riots following a grand jury decision in the Breonna Taylor case, showed up to roll call less than 24 hours later.

Officer Aubrey Gregory was met with a round of applause as he walked through a room packed with fellow cops from his department, according to a video tweeted by WDRB reporter Kristen Shanahan.

“Last night, two LMPD officers were shot in the line of duty during our response to the local protests,” The Louisville Metro Police Department wrote on Facebook Thursday. “We’re happy to share this short video of Majory Gregory, walking in to one of our roll calls less than 24 hours after being shot.”
“Major Gregory is still recovering from his injury and is not back to full duty…. yet,” LMPD continued. “The other officer shot is still recovering.”
Gregory was one of two policemen to be shot Wednesday during riots following the city’s decision to charge one of three officers involved in the death of Taylor, who was killed during the execution of a narcotics warrant in March, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal. Larynzo Johnson, 26, was arrested and charged as the gunmen, the local outlet reported.

“Last night’s situation could have been so much worse for our officers and for the people who were protesting when the gunfire rang out,” Louisville Metro Police Department interim Chief Robert Schroeder told the Courier-Journal. “We are extremely fortunate these two officers will recover.” (RELATED: Over 120 Arrests Recorded At Louisville Riots, Reports Say)
