AUBURN, Ala. (WRBL) – Family and friends of an Auburn police officer wounded in the line of duty, have set up a GoFundMe page to support him and his family during his recovery.

A link to the page can be found here, for those of you interested in contributing.

A message on the page states:

“On February 15th, Auburn Police Officer Justin Sanders had just come onto his night shift when he heard the “be on the lookout” call for a robbery of a local pharmacy in Auburn. Justin happened to see the suspects vehicle and pulled them over at the Dollar General in Auburn on Pepperell Parkway. Upon exiting his car he was fired upon multiple times and severely injured,”  Justin is recovering at UAB but as we know the road to recovery will be long. We are starting this Go Fund Ne Page to help with expenses they will incur over the next several months. Thank you for your support and prayers.”
