TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - Less than a week after getting shot pursuing a stolen vehicle, Gadsden County Deputy Chicara Hearns has been released from Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.

Hearns left TMH Sunday afternoon with the help of a multi-agency escort. Vehicles from agencies from TPD, Florida Highway Patrol, GCSO, and others helped her safely return to home, where GCSO says she’ll continue the healing process.

In a Facebook live video posted by GCSO, Deputy Hearns was emotional as she left the hospital and saw the large law enforcement presence there. She then returned home to a crowd of cheering family.
