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.
Pearson’s alleged shooter, McDonald’s worker Paris Sadler, 20, remains locked up at Cook County Jail, accused of attempted murder.
The bullet that Sadler allegedly fired is still lodged near Pearson’s spine. It severed an artery, and he nearly bled to death, surgeon Dr. J. Kayle Lee said.
