Police Officer Who Was Shot On Duty Proposes After Being Discharged

A police detective who was shot in the line of duty decided to make his discharge from hospital extra special by proposing to his shocked girlfriend. Richard Hershey, 29, a detective with New Jersey State Police, was rushed to Cooper Hospital, in Camden, New Jersey, after being shot investigating a mobile home invasion. During his time in hospital, he was not allowed to see friends or family because of COVID precautions. Richard, who had been planning to propose to his girlfriend Nicole Grazioli, 28, for some time, but because of the coronavirus, the perfect time or place had evaded him. Having spoken to Nicole via phone calls and FaceTime every day during his 11-day stay in the hospital, the detective decided to turn a negative into a positive. So, after being discharged on May 6, Richard dropped to one knee as he reunited with Nicole for the first time as he left the hospital and popped the big question. Nicole, crying in disbelief, said yes to her new fiancé.
