VIDEO: Pennsylvania Officer Speaks on Surviving 7 Shots

Doctors call Officer Chris Dorman a miracle. Shot seven times two week ago, he's talking and alive.

"Basic call for someone smoking marijuana in the back of an apartment building, just went to check it out," Dorman told Action News Thursday.

Dorman says he approached Donte Island in the back of an apartment just a block from the Folcroft Police Department.

He says almost immediately Island punched him, staggering him, and then opened fire, first hitting him in the face.

His wound gushing with blood, Dorman still managed to get on his radio and call for help.

The 25-year-old was able to get away down a breezeway thanks to his brother in blue Patrolman Dave DePietro who arrived in seconds and exchanged gunfire with Island.

"At that time he began firing at him and gave me a chance to retreat and get in Sgt. [William] Bair's car and get to the hospital," DePietro said.

Police captured Island.

Dorman underwent several surgeries and within a couple of days was released to a police caravan and an outpouring of support from the Folcroft community.

Dorman is expected to make a full recovery, though he will require several more surgeries to his face. He's looking forward to returning to work.
