EDDY, Texas -- A Texas meteorologist who was shot last month outside the Waco area TV station where he works has returned to the air — wearing a Superman T-shirt.

Patrick Crawford presented the Monday morning forecast at KCEN.

KCEN's on-air and control room staff wore T-shirts Monday bearing the Superman logo on the front and the words "Crawford Strong" on the back. Crawford then opened his button-down shirt to reveal his own Superman T-shirt.

Authorities are hunting for the man who shot Crawford three times on Dec. 17 as the meteorologist was starting to drive home from the station. Crawford spent several days in a hospital.

Department of Public Safety Trooper D.L. Wilson said the investigation continues. He said a suspect has not yet been identified.

Crawford also has some ties to the Chicago area. He is a graduate from Northern Illinois University and his wife Heather Brinkman was a meteorology intern at WGN-TV.
