Community raising funds for officers injured in high-speed shootout
CARROLL COUNTY, Ga. - Community efforts are underway to help the families of two of the police officers shot during that violent high-speed chase in Carroll County last Monday. Both of the officers face a long road ahead in their recovery.
A group of law enforcement spouses from West Georgia is organizing fundraisers for Sgt, Rob Holloway and his family. He’s the Carrollton police officer shot during that pursuit.
"Stephanie Halloway got the call that we all dread. I think that’s our worst fear," said Aundi Leslie.
There is a GoFundMe page that has been set up to help the Holloways and T-shirt sale as well.
