He is recovering well, according to the News4Jax reporter Vic Micolucci.

The wild thing is two young men are being sought out for the crime. The two kids are reportedly around 16 to 20 years old.

Nix told the officers the kids came up to him flashed a light in his face and said give me, and at that time Nix pushed the kid and was shot.
