Dallas officer honored for heroic comeback

Senior Cpl. Jeremy Borchardt returned to duty after being shot


Dallas Morning News

DALLAS — An aching pain that travels down Senior Cpl. Jeremy Borchardt's left leg serves as a constant reminder of the bullet that slammed into it, severing his femoral artery, during a standoff outside a motel room in August 2006.

Six months later, Borchardt cradled mortally wounded Senior Cpl. Mark Nix in the back of a squad car as he and other officers rushed Nix to the hospital.
