EL CAJON - May 18, 2012 - Officers Jarred Slocum and Tim McFarland speak with reporters about the August 21, 2011 shooting where Officer Slocum was shot in the head. Citizen hero Dave Lembcke also speaks. Later that night at the El Cajon Police Awards, all three received several prestigeous awards for their heroic efforts. The entire ordeal was caught on tape by SanDiegoNewsVideo.com as it happened on that tragic day, which started after a suspect shot his 1 year old daughter and his mother-in-law. The suspect then shot at officers, striking Officer Slocum in the left temple. The suspect then lit his house on fire and shot himself. Doctors say it's a miracle Slocum survived and is doing as well as he is, although he still has some recovery to go through. Slocum has decided to "medically retire" from the El Cajon Police Department, move, and attend college. We wish him the best in his future endeavors. Officer McFarland is still with the department.
