Donating for Wounded Officer

APD Officer Daniel Webster, a nine-year APD veteran, was shot six times and remained in critical condition Tuesday.

The people of Albuquerque came together Monday to open their hearts and their wallets for a good cause. Papa John’s Pizza and its patrons raised $6,000, which were all the profits made on Monday from local franchise locations, and donated the money to Albuquerque Police Officer Daniel Webster, who was shot during a traffic stop on October 21.

Webster, a nine-year APD veteran, was shot six times and critically wounded during the incident. He has undergone multiple surgeries, and remained in critical condition Tuesday. Albuquerque Police Department spokeswoman Celina Espinoza said, “Thank you everyone for the touching show of support and sense of community. We truly are blessed to serve such an amazing city and thank you to all the Papa John’s employees who worked their pepperonis off to make this happen.”

The alleged shooter, 34-year-old Davon Lymon, is in federal custody. He fled the shooting scene into a residential neighborhood north of Central and Eubank and was later arrested. Lymon has an extensive criminal record. He was recently released from prison after having served 11 years for killing Ronald Chanslor in 2001.
