Strangers raise thousands for slain Minnesota police officer's family
Adam Bongard didn’t know slain Mendota Heights, Minn., police officer Scott Patrick, but that didn’t stop him from creating an online fundraiser that is bringing in thousands of dollars for the family.
"The guy gave his life in a completely senseless tragedy," said Bongard, 31, of St. Cloud. "We’ve never met these folks. It doesn’t mean we can’t help."
