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.

"What was the first thing that went through your mind when you got shot?" I almost feel like he should have said "A fucking bullet? What do you think? I was having a great time!"

i  have  been  arrested  before  and i  never  held  anger  for  it.  these  cops  are  people  like  you  and me.  they  are  simply  doing  a  job. in  44  years,  traffic  tickets  and  what  not...i  have  only  had  1  bad  experience  with  cops...and  i  must  admit  that  me  being  a  smart  ass  is  why  that  guy  said  some  smart  assed  stuff  back  at  me.   glad  this  guy  is  ok  and  i  would  have  jumped  to  help  him  myself.
