Isaac Durr was shot five times and lives to tell his story. He wouldn't be where he is without the support of his family, especially his wife.
"I basically just had enough time to turn around, see my neighbor pointing a gun at me and then shots started firing," remembers Durr.
On July 10th, police say his neighbor, Scott Brus, came over to his house and started shooting him. Brus ended up taking his own life.
Durr says the two weren't even arguing at the time. In fact, their last run-in was in January. "The officer that day said I would just try to avoid your neighbor from talking to him briefly, it appears he may have some mental health issues," said Durr.
Today, Durr's feeling better than anyone, including the doctors, ever expected.
At the hospital, he earned the nickname, "Superman." He was shot five times, lived through it, and doctors told him they even think he tried to catch one of the bullets. But not only is he alive, he is keeping a good attitude about it all.
"The more positive you have around you, the easier it is to keep positive yourself and keep getting better and I think the mental part of it plays a huge role in how fast you recover," said Durr.
While he is getting better, he still can't put weight on the left side of his body. He says his wife, Holly, is his rock and the reason he is as far as he is.
"I thank God every day I can wake up and see my kids and still be here with my wife," said Durr.
"I already had two kids to take care of, diapers and feeding and all of that, no with me not being as mobile, she's kind of get three kids to take care of again," said Durr about his wife Holly. Holly says she wouldn't have it any other way.
"Long before this happened, we were a really strong, strong couple, strong family. We're best friends so you know anything I gotta do, I'm there."
The doctors do expect a full recovery but they say it'll be about four or five months before Isaac can get back to work. Isaac really wanted to stress how grateful he is for the support from friends, family and even strangers.
