Gallipolis Daily Tribune / 52 years later, bystander honored for helping patrolman
As Colonel Pride looks on, retired Sergeant Clifford Russell enjoys a moment with Russell Fellure, who assisted Sgt. Russell after he was shot by a wanted felon 52 years ago.  This was the first time the two had met since that fateful night in 1952.  Russell spent over 40 days in the hospital but went on to complete his career, retiring in 1991.  Photo Courtesy of the Gallipolis Daily Tribune.
