Created December 12th, 2022

On November 12th, Deputy Luke Werner was working a secondary employment, in full uniform at an HEB in Austin, TX. On this day his path crossed with a suspect that was determined to “kill a cop” that day. After less than a minute interaction with the suspect he violently stabbed Deputy Werner in the neck two times with a large steak knife. The suspect missed his carotid artery by millimeters requiring emergency surgery for his injuries. 

The suspect was arrested in the parking lot and has been indicted on Attempted Capital Murder. Due the circumstances of his employment Worker Compensation has denied the case and others involved in the incident have avoided stepping up for liability leaving Deputy Werner responsible for medical bills and lost compensation  

This fund raiser is to aid Deputy Werner with the major medical bills from his initial surgery, hospital stay, trauma care and future treatment as he fights his way back to full duty. 

UPDATE****

Deputy Werner has returned to full duty, but continues to require treatment. Workers Comp did completely deny the claim, but is still struggling to pay off the medical costs
