OKLAHOMA CITY (KOKH) – Deputy Mark Johns was released from the hospital just four days after suffering life-threatening injuries.
Deputy Johns is recovering from a damaged femoral artery after he was shot while trying to shield Sgt. Bobby Swartz from the gunfire.
Surgery was done on Tuesday to fix Johns’ artery and remove shrapnel from his abdomen.
The sheriff’s office said the pace of his recovery so far has stunned both them and doctors.
