COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

The Columbus Police Officer who was shot during a standoff 11 days ago is now back at work. 

Officer Josh McQuien was shot in the shoulder during a five-hour standoff at a Hilton Avenue home on Friday, Oct. 21. 

The bullet did not penetrate his bulletproof vest, and he was released from the hospital later that day. 

McQuien posted a photo on Facebook on Tuesday that said “Healed and blessed…back at work #Godisawesome.” 

Daniel Ray Crisp, the suspect accused of shooting McQuien, first appeared in Recorder’s Court on Saturday, Oct. 22 and made his second court appearance on Wednesday, Oct. 26. 

Crisp, 34, was charged with aggravated assault with a gun on a police officer, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, burglary, and property damage. 

Crisp pled not guilty to the charges and was given various bonds totaling more than $400,000.
