More than a week after losing three-quarters of his blood when he was shot while attempting to make an arrest in the 8400 block of South Kingston, Officer Del Pearson was saluted by two dozen fellow officers and McCarthy as he left Advocate Christ Medical Center in a wheelchair.

Wearing his police star on a sling supporting his arm, Pearson did not speak but appeared moved by the salute and officers' happy cries of "Way to go, Del!"
