This is the ONLY OFFICIAL FUNDRAISER for NYPD Officers Christopher Wells & Joseph Murphy
On Tuesday, November 24th, NYPD Police Officers Christopher Wells and Joseph Murphy were sent to a domestic violence welfare check within the confines of the 105th Precinct (Queens, NY). Wells and Murphy were escorting a domestic violence victim into an apartment when a male subject began firing a handgun, without warning. Officer Wells was struck in his leg, causing his femur to fracture, and Officer Murphy was struck in both his hands. Although both severely injured, they were able to return fire, protecting themselves and the victim. The shooter was shot multiple times and pronounced deceased. The victim caller was unharmed during the shootout.
Chris and Joe were both rushed to Jamaica Hospital were they underwent hours of surgery and continue to recover while surrounded by their loving families. Although both officers are expected to recover, they have a long mental and physical road ahead of them.
Chris and Joe both have beautiful, young families. Chris’s wife just gave birth to their first child two weeks ago, and Joe and his wife have a beautiful 1 year old at home. The money raised through this fundraiser will greatly assist both these families in their time of need.
This fundraiser, hosted on the Fund The First platform, is the only OFFICIAL fundraiser for these two hero officers. This fundraiser is in conjunction with Law Enforcement Officers Weekend, The City of Long Beach Police Department PBA.
