The community is coming together to support the El Paso County sheriff’s deputy who died after being shot while conducting a traffic stop in San Elizario Friday morning.
As KTSM previously reported, Deputy Peter Herrera suffered multiple gunshot wounds — including one to the head — at about 2 a.m. near the 1000 block of Chicken Ranch Road.
Herrera sucummbed to his injuries Sunday evening, according to El Paso County Sheriff Richard Wiles.
A GoFundMe page created to help Herrera cover hospital expenses has raised more than $22,000 since it was created Friday.
“The Deputy will have a very long road ahead of him but is expected to recover,” the page reads. “Please pray for him, his family and partners.”
