MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

We are sending a High 5 to a DeSoto County sheriff’s deputy!

Sergeant Hunter Garrett was given the Medal of Valor on Tuesday night.

Garrett was shot in the foot while attempting to arrest a robbery suspect earlier this year.

K-9 Deputy Lee Hutchens was also injured during that same incident.

Both Garrett and Hutchens received the Purple Heart Award for their heroism during that arrest.
