ENGELWOOD — Officer Cem Duzel, a Colorado Springs Police officer injured in the line of duty last year, finally got a visit from his hero.

WWE star John Cena visited Duzel and his family at their home in New York.

Earlier this week Duzel was moved to New York, his home state, while he continues his recovery.

He'll continue his rehabilitation there for the next few months.

Karrar Noaman Al Khammasi, the man suspected in Duzel's shooting, has pleaded not guilty to attempted first-degree murder of a police officer, felony menacing, and possession of a weapon by a previous offender.

His trial is set to begin on February 18.
