Det. Brittney Hilton had no idea she had just been shot. All she said she felt at first was an incredible amount of pain, and a ‘very sick feeling.’LitigationLiabilityExcess & Surplus Lines
‘I was cold at some points, shaking. The fear kind of takes over, the adrenaline takes over,’ Hilton told ABC News. ‘I just said, ‘Am I going to die?’’
‘I said, ‘Please just tell my kids that I love them and don’t let them find out on social media that I’ve been shot,’’ she continued. ‘I didn’t know if I was going to make it to the hospital.’
Hilton, a mom of three who has been with the Bridge City, Texas, Police Department for 11 years, said the bullet came within one millimeter -- the edge of a penny -- from killing her.
But what Hilton said she also didn’t realize at first was that the bullet had come from her own service gun, a semi-automatic pistol called the P320. It was still holstered inside her purse, according to the police report.
