Community members continue to show their support for local law enforcement who have been injured on the job.

On Saturday, people participated in a fundraiser at the San Luis Obispo Sportsmen's Association Gun Range to raise money for the officers who were shot while searching for an active shooter in Paso Robles in June.

The event started at 7:30 a.m. and included a lunch and dinner guests could purchase.

For $50, participants got a 50 round, 10 station shooting match.

Event organizers said the funds from the daylong event will benefit the family of Nick Dreyfus, a San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Deputy who was shot in the face during the June incident.

The general manager of the gun range said she hopes to help other families of law enforcement who may be facing similar hardships.

"I think law enforcement needs to know that the general population is very supportive of them and appreciates what they do, and that's what we want to get across," said Julia Soto, the general manager of San Luis Obispo Sportsmen's Association Gun Range.

Soto said the goal from the fundraiser was to raise $10,000 for Deputy Dreyfus and his family.
