Shot N.J. Officer Returns To Work As Detective

January 17, 2012  | 

Paramus (N.J.) Police Officer Rachel Morgan returned to work Monday as a detective almost a year after she was struck by gunfire during a pursuit.

Officer Morgan, 32, is on light duty, meaning she hasn't returned to road patrol and has yet to be assigned to a detective division. Morgan has worked for the department for three years.

Officer Morgan was shot twice on Feb. 6 (Superbowl Sunday) while pursuing 23-year-old Michael Carmody. After Carmody's vehicle spun out, Officer Morgan approached his silver Acura to remove him. Two rounds from Carmody's semi-auto 9mm pistol struck her in the abdomen and hip.

Officers Morgan and Ryan Hayo returned fire, ending the gunfight. Carmody died three days later from the head wound.

Congratulations and welcome back! It's great to hear when a fellow LEO returns to duty after being injured in the performance of that duty.

Congrats Det.Morgan. Glad the s--t bag was DOA. Take care & be safe.
