Support fund for Sommer Barnes

On April 28th, the tragic events of the shooting in Boone, NC lead to the deaths of five people. Two were officers reporting to the scene, and the the other three were Sommer Barnes’s Mother Michelle Ligon, her stepfather George Ligon, and brother Isaac Barnes. 

All proceeds from this fund will help support her as she pays for legal fees, funeral costs, potential house repair, and travel expenses.

Hear more from Sommer directly at the interview linked. She is deeply appreciative of any help coming her way as she deals with this extremely difficult time.
