Officer Johnny served bravely as a veteran motorcycle officer with a Texas police department before a shooting in the line of duty took him off the job earlier this year. During a search for narcotics, he opened a car door to find the narcotics suspect hiding in the car’s floor bed. The suspect fired 4 times before Johnny was able to return fire (his gun was holstered when he opened the car door). He was hit in the eye and hand before returning fire and then hit again in the groin. Officer Johnny returned fire, shooting 7 times, and the suspect died on the scene. Following the shooting, he underwent a week of hospitalization, including extensive surgeries on his eye, hand and hip eye surgeries. He lost a middle finger and might suffer from permanent vision loss. Officer Johnny is an Army Special Forces Vietnam Veteran and 31-year law enforcement veteran.
