On February 28, 2017, Officer Ronny Cortez and Officer Jose Munoz responded to a burglary in progress call. During the investigation, Officer Cortez, 49, was shot in the stomach and back, and Munoz, 34, was shot in the leg and foot.
Officer Cortez was left paralyzed. However, he is getting feeling back in part of his leg and has been moved to Houston TIRR for therapy and recovery.
Please join us in a fundraiser to benefit both Officers and their families.
