Love, support shared on social media for shot Raleigh officer

RALEIGH (WTVD) -- An outpouring of love and prayers came on social media as the news broke that a Raleigh police officer had been shot in the line of duty Wednesday night.
Thousands of individuals reached out on social media using #PrayForRPD to say they were thinking about and praying for the injured officer.

In addition, a few Raleigh-Durham area organizations echoed the same sentiments.

Also, a GoFundMe account was created, purportedly to help the Raleigh police officer who was shot in the line of duty Wednesday but it has not been verified or endorsed by the family.

A few local law enforcement leaders also spoke up with their support.

But the prayers and well wishes did not just come from local organizations. Word spread as far as California.

The injured officer made it out of surgery Thursday morning. Plus, police say two suspects are in custody for the violence.
