Injured Granbury cop takes step toward returning to duty

Posted: Updated:
In June of last year, a Hood County man went on a shooting rampage, killing a sheriff's deputy and wounding a Granbury police officer.

On Thursday, that police officer, Officer Chad Davis, reached a major milestone in his recovery –- he qualified on the shooting range with his pistol. As a result, that means he can carry his duty firearm.

“Now when I report to work, I will wear my duty weapon and badge,” said Davis.

Davis has been on light duty at the police department since Nov. 2013.

Davis still has to qualify with a shotgun and a rifle in order to be released for full duty. He doesn’t know how long it will take him, but he’s going to keep working at it. 

The shooting Davis was wounded in started when Hood County Deputy Lance McLean responded to a disturbance call along Oak Trail Shores.

Richard McCommas shot McLean in the head and then took off into the city of Granbury.

McCommas got into a shootout with officers near the town square, where Davis was wounded.

McCommas was killed.
