GoFundMe created for state trooper shot during traffic stop

A GoFundMe campaign has been created for the state trooper who was shot during a traffic stop in Hyannis late Friday night.

The GoFundMe was created on Saturday by the State Police 85th Recruit Training Troop and had raised more than $62,000 from more than 650 people as of Sunday afternoon, according to the platform.

The trooper will most likely be out of work for months due to surgeries, according to the GoFundMe.

“Any donations from his classmates, fellow Troopers, or any other supporters would surely be appreciated for our brother,” the GoFundMe said.

Donors showed their support for the state trooper in the comments.

The 28-year-old state trooper remains in the hospital with non life-threatening injuries as of 2 p.m. Sunday, State Police said in a statement. The shooting remains under investigation.
