Two of Detroit's finest are dealing with numerous challenges as they recover from being shot on the job 8 months ago.

According to police, officers James Kisselberg and Benjamin Atkinson were shot by Raymond Durham during a search for the killer of WSU police officer Collin Rose.

Durham allegedly opened fire, shooting Kisselberg several times in the upper body, as well as shooting Atkinson in the chest. Now, both officers and their families are coping with their physical injuries as well as growing financial burdens. 

A fundraiser is being held to support both officers at Tony V's Tavern located at 5756 Cass Avenue in Detroit on Friday Nov. 10 at 6 p.m.

The cost is $20 for dinner, and there will also be a special auction. All funds raised will help cover medical & living expenses for the officers and their families.

Meanwhile, Durham appeared in court today where we was ruled incompetent to stand trial. Another evaluation has been set for February and he will remain in custody. Durham is charged with the murder of Officer Rose and the shooting of both DPD officers.
