N.H. Cop Describes Moment He Was Shot

December 05, 2012  | 

As the suspect he was pursuing wheeled on him, a Manchester (N.H.) Police officer said he tried to stop and felt himself falling backwards as the first shot shattered his left shin bone.

Officer Dan Doherty said more shots followed—piercing his legs and lower abdomen—as he lay on the ground with the gunman advancing to within two feet of him.
