A Gofundme page has been setup to help the officer that was shot in Rockford and his family with expenses. It was started by Breanna Schellschmidt according to the page
Rockford Scanner fully supports Officer Wright and the Winnebago County Sheriff office and highly recommends anyone who has some extra money to help support him as well.
Our great friend, Stephen Wright, while on duty as a Deputy Sheriff Officer of Winnebago County, was shot in the early hours of Saturday Morning Sept. 22nd. This was just the beginning of a horrible nightmare for him and all his loved ones. Since then he has been hospitalized and is still awaiting another surgery before he can make an effort to attempt a full recovery. There is a very long road ahead and one thing is for sure, it won’t be an easy one.
This account was set up to gift our friend with some help in these very serious and troubling times. There are going to be many expenses ahead, and this would allow even the smallest bit of help to him and his fiance. To everyone who has been supporting and helping them in this time of need, thank you so much.
A special thank you to all the officers who have sacrificed their time to help get some justice, and all of the medical professionals aiding in Stephen’s recovery process.
