Webb: Hardest challenge I’ve faced in life
January 5, 2021

Sr. Cpl. T.J. Webb, who was shot Dec. 10 in Rehoboth Beach while working with the First State Violent Fugitive Taskforce, is now recovering at home.

Webb was escorted by members of the Milford Police Department on Dec. 30, after being released from a rehabilitation center.

In a letter released to the public, Webb thanked the community for its support and vowed to make a full recovery.

“This journey started over three weeks ago, and it goes without saying, it has been the hardest challenge in my life,” he said.

Immediately following the incident, Webb was taken to Beebe Healthcare in Lewes, then transferred to Christiana Hospital. He then spent time recovering at Post Acute Medical in Dover.

“Everyone is telling me that I’ll get back to where I was,” he said. “I want to be better than I ever was, and in some ways, I feel like I have already achieved that. In part, that is because of all the faith and support [the community has] shown in me.”

A Facebook page called TJW #5107 Strong continues to provide updates on Webb’s condition, and offer ways to help Webb and his family.

“We all have our bad days, and at the end of the day we have to accept it and move on,” Webb said. “The only way to do that is rip off that rearview mirror and drive forward. Forward for you, forward for your family and forward toward greatness. I am excited to see what this new year will bring. I already know it will be my year.”
