HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- The man who was shot in the head during a Facebook Live stream continues making progress!

Through the months of recovery, Holmes reached other milestones, beginning with breathing on his own, then writing, and regaining his motor skills like throwing a ball.

A representative from the Do It For Devyn Facebook says he hopes to walk before the anniversary of the incident. Holmes is currently going through physical therapy in Galveston.

As his physical therapy ramps up, the legal case against the woman seen firing the shot continues.

Cassandra Damper is charged with aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury and tampering with evidence. Her next court date is set for Jan. 31.
