Fundraiser Planned For Injured Police Officer
A fundraiser for wounded Las Vegas police officer Shay Mikalonis and his family will be held Thursday to raise money for anticipated rehabilitation costs.
Las Vegas Metro Police Lt. Erik Lloyd is the president of the Injured Officers Police Fund, which is organizing the fundraiser.
He told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that Mikalonis is in critical condition and on a ventilator at UMC but seems to recognize his family.
Mikalonis was shot June 1 during a Black Lives Matter protest on the Strip and has undergone two surgeries, one to remove a bullet from his neck, and another to repair a shattered jaw.
Lloyd says workman’s compensation will cover a lot of the costs of rehabilitation but there will still be a lot of expenses for the family.
The drive-through “Shay Day” will be at Sahara West Urgent Care from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
