GARDEN CITY PARK - An NYPD officer from Garden City Park who was shot in the head on the job was released from the hospital today. Officer Kevin Brennan was greeted by cheers and applause from a sea of fellow officers as he left Bellevue Hospital this afternoon. He was pushed out of the hospital in a wheelchair, but then rose and walked to a waiting car. Ten days ago, Brennan was shot at point-blank range by a suspect during a struggle at a Brooklyn housing project, authorities say. He's been hailed a "miracle cop," because the bullet lodged in the base of his skull and did not cause serious brain damage. To top off his day, Brennan got a visit from his favorite New York Giant, defensive end Justin Tuck. Brennan says he's excited to get home to be with his wife and newborn daughter.
