PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

An Oregon State Police trooper who was shot while on duty on Christmas Day took his first steps since the shooting.

Trooper Nic Cederberg is making great progress, but still has a long way to go since being shot 12 times during the deadly Dec. 25 shootout in Sherwood.

A video posted on GoFundMe shows Cederberg taking several steps in the hospital with a little help.

Cederberg's family said he is in good spirits, especially considering he thought his leg was paralyzed a few weeks ago, and didn't expect he would walk again.

Since the shooting, Cederberg had to undergo several surgeries.

Even though he has a lot more physical therapy ahead of him, Cederberg said he's determined to get back on his feet.
