    Dallas Police Chief David Brown honored five people on Thursday for helping one of his officers after he had been shot.

    On Feb. 14, 2014, Dallas Police Officer Josh Burns was shot three times during a traffic stop.

    Several citizens came to help him after he was shot.

    North Dallas citizens Shamonie Fluellen, Tyhesha Fleming and Ann Walker were all awarded the Citizen’s Certificate of Merit by Brown.

    Walker was unable to make the ceremony.

    "I feel good what I did for him,” said Fluellen. “Would I do it again? Yea, I would do it again if I saw something like that happen."

    Burns was released from Baylor Medical Center on Thursday. He is still recovering at home, but was able to use Skype to take part in the ceremony.
