On early Sunday morning, May 15th, a shooting occurred outside one of the most popular student bars in Syracuse; Orange Crate Brewing Co. With it being graduation weekend, the scene was packed with students, recent graduates, family, and friends all celebrating their achievements. Shane Manley was working security and his selfless actions prevented what could have been a much worse situation after a dispute between two individuals erupted outside of the main entrance. Shane intervened and kept these individuals from entering the facility with a handgun. He was shot once in the stomach and was rushed to the hospital where he underwent emergency surgery. He is currently waiting on a second surgery, and we are hopeful that he will be okay.
Shane is a coach, friend, mentor, talented MMA fighter, and jiu-jitsu practitioner. He provides training for underprivileged youth in the Syracuse community. Shane works security at Upstate University Hospital and Orange Crate Brewing Co.
Shane grew up in Upstate NY and continues to give back to his community in every way possible. He is always willing to lend a hand and asks for nothing in return. As he recovers from his sustained injuries, funds will be used to help cover medical expenses and lost income from being out of work.
