A spokesperson for East Alabama Medical Center says Johnny Richmond, known to many as Mr. Penny, is scheduled to return to his home sometime next week.

Richmond is breathing on his own and talking a little bit. He has been hospitalized since February, when police say he was injured by a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

Mr. Penny was a crossing guard at Dean Road Elementary. He was also described as the biggest Auburn University football fan, where he did pushups in the student section to rally the team.
