On Monday, September 16, 2013 Officer Scott Williams, a 23 year veteran of the Metropolitan Police Department in Washington, DC, was shot in the line of duty while searching for the Navy Yard Active-Shooter. Scott was one of the first police officers on the scene and as soon as Scott arrived he assembled a team that immediately made entry into building 197 to save the innocent lives being threatened by the active-shooter. During their search the team came under fire from the suspect. Scott was shot in both legs causing his left leg femur bone to crack and the right leg femur bone to shatter. Although Scott has made great strides since being shot, the recovery process will take time and there are many unforeseen expenses on the horizon.
The love and support that has been shown to Scott over the past two weeks has been tremendous. So many people have reached out to help Scott and thank him for the heroic actions he displayed at the Navy Yard. This page has been created by Scott's friends and co-workers who love him very much and want to do everything they can to help him. Although it took a little convincing, Scott has agreed to allow us to create this page. Please help us raise money for Scott so he can focus on getting better.
