Donations for Officers Ronny Cortez and Jose Munoz

On Tuesday, February 28, 2017, Houston police officers were called to a neighborhood just after 11 a.m. to investigate a reported burglary. The two officers were notified by someone that they noticed that the door to a shed in their backyard was open. As the officers opened the door to the shed, a man stepped out and began shooting. The officers returned fire, killing the gunmen.

Officer Ronny Cortez, a 24-year veteran of the department, was shot several times in the stomach and back. He was taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital, where he is listed in critical condition with a bullet lodged near his spine.

Officer Jose Munoz, a 10-year veteran of the department, was shot in the foot and leg. He was taken to Ben Taub Hospital, where he is listed in stable condition.

Please keep these officers and their families in your thoughts and prayers, they both have a long road of recovery ahead of them.
