Police Motorcycle Club holds fundraiser for DC Officer shot at Navy Yard

This past Saturday, a very special fundraising event was held for Officer Scott Williams at Kelly's Irish Times in Washington DC. The Renegade Pigs, a non-profit organization comprised of active and retired public safety officers, were the organizers of the event. Officer Williams was badly injured in the Navy Yard shooting in September. The Washington, DC Metropolitan Police Department K-9 officer was shot in both legs, cracking his femur bone in one leg and shattering it in the other.

Organizers collected $20 at the door, sold shirts and held a silent auction. More than 300 people attended the event helping raise more than $8,000, with 100% of the proceeds going directly to Williams. Memorial Fund Chairman & CEO Craig Floyd was in attendance at the event and had the opportunity to speak with Officer Williams, as well as with NCIS Special Agents Brian Kelley and Ed Martin, the officers who rescued Officer Williams and carried him to safety after he was shot.
