One thing White remembers from the shooting is he felt God was with him the whole time.

"There was a presence beside me," he said. "I could feel it. I thought God was there to take me. I thought I was going to die right there."

But, said White, that's when his partner ran over to help him, and the police chief arrived. As they got his bleeding under control, he said he felt the presence leave.

"Once the chief arrived...whatever the presence was...it disappeared because the chief took that place. I just felt I would be OK."

White spent 21 days in the hospital and had four surgeries. There's another coming in January or February.
