Jody Maltba, 33, of Lenoir, and Terry Hefner, 44, of Hickory, exchanged gunfire in the parking lot of a Dollar General in Hudson late on Oct. 15.

Hefner died, but Maltba is still alive. Hudson Police Chief Richard Blevins said Friday that Maltba’s condition is improving.

“We’re just waiting until he’s in a position that he is able to speak,” Blevins said.

Maltba was previously described as being in critical but stable condition.
