Rancho Cucamonga deputy Marcus Mason, who was shot four times during a traffic stop, has been released from the hospital

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (KABC) — A little over a month after he was shot multiple times during a traffic stop in Rancho Cucamonga, Deputy Sheriff Marcus Mason arrived at his station for a hero’s reception following his release from an inpatient treatment center.

It’s a day his family and brothers and sisters in blue have been waiting for.

“He has a will to survive and he has shown that since that night and throughout his recovery process,” Capt said. Ernie Perez of the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, who called Mason a warrior.

The department’s five-year veteran was shot four times while responding to a suspicious vehicle call on July 16.

Officials say two shots were stopped by his body armor and gun belt, but two bullets hit Mason in the stomach area.

The suspect, Nicholas Campbell, has been arrested and remains in jail without bail. He faces a long list of charges including attempted murder of a peace officer.

On Friday, Mason said he was overwhelmed by what had happened but was forever grateful to those who rushed out to help him when he needed it most.

“I don’t usually get emotional, but I love all my partners, just that night, the care and the speed and the promptness of going in there that night and making sure they’re doing whatever they can to keep me alive,” he said he.

Sometimes he said he didn’t think he would make it.

Mason is now on the road to recovery and plans to rejoin the force once his body is ready.

“We look forward to Marcus getting back to work very soon and excited for his recovery and physical therapy, which he will now begin,” Perez said.

Mason added, “You can either sit down and feel sorry for yourself, or you can get up every day and try to get better and get better every day, get back on your feet.”

Until then, Mason said he’ll enjoy sitting on the couch and watching TV.
