DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. -- At its annual awards ceremony Thursday night, Douglas County sheriff's Det. Dan Brite stood to be recognized along with the people who saved his life on that day in September when a gunman shot him.
"Dan Brite went to the fight, exchanged gunfire and continued the fight until he had no more life in him. For that, he deserved a heck of a lot more than a medal of valor," Sheriff Tony Spurlock said during the ceremony.
Brite is making a miraculous recovery, and has allowed us to follow his progress as he learns to walk again.
