Fort Worth Officer Shot by Drug Suspect Released From Hospital | NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth

A Hero to me

A Fort Worth officer who was shot three times last week in Haltom City by a drug suspect left the hospital Thursday afternoon.

Officer John Bell was shot in the right eye socket, right hip joint and left hand on Jan. 29 while assisting Haltom City police.

Dozens of Bell’s colleagues stood at attention outside Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital and clapped and cheered as he got into his car with his wife, Barbara.

“A whole lot’s been made out of this, and I’m really humbled by it,” Bell said minutes after he was discharged. “Everybody’s so nice and saying, ‘You’re a hero.’ I don’t really consider myself that.”
