(Fargo, ND) -- Fargo Mayor Tim Mahoney is giving updates on three officers involved in the deadly exchange of gunfire July 14th on 25th Street South.

"Andy (Dotas) and Tyler (Hawes) are getting better. I loved Tyler's comment when it was the Celebration of Life. He loves Fargo and he wants to get back to protecting the city and our dedicated officers. That's where they're at. Zach is working again, not on the streets quite yet, but he's getting back to it as well," said Mahoney. 

Mahoney said officers Dotas and Hawes are now out of ICU and in a "regular room" and going through rehab. 

The mayor said the officers are "recovering well" and in good spirits. 

The injured officers are also getting opportunities to spend time outside enjoying sunshine. 

Mahoney said the officer's families so appreciate the support they've received from the community. 

He said it will take a month to two months for the officers to get "back in shape".
