A mother and six-year veteran of the Dallas DART police force has been named among 11 officer shot during an attack by two gunmen in Texas last night.
Misty McBride was hit in the shoulder and abdomen during the attack but survived and is alert in Baylor University Hospital, according to father Richard who spoke to KTVT.
Misty’s ten-year-old daughter Hunter also spoke to reporters, saying she had seen her mom and told her: ‘I love you and I’m glad you’re here.’
Richard added that his daughter had been shot while standing in the street, suffering a broken shoulder and wound to the stomach before falling to the floor.
He told reporters that she crawled across the floor back to her patrol car where other officers pulled her inside and took her to the hospital.
