A Meadows Place police officer struck by gunfire Friday during a cross-county chase with a pair of carjacking suspects says that what happened to him was "the best of a bad situation."

The bullet that hit Sgt. Larry Eissler left his right arm a mass of bruises extending from shoulder to elbow but narrowly missed arteries, nerves and bones.
