Fort Lupton Police Sergeant Chris Pelton was seriously wounded in the shootout Monday evening and remains in stable but critical condition. Chris was hit in the face suffering serious injuries including lost teeth and a shattered jaw. He has since undergone two surgeries and remains in the hospital. Additional surgeries are expected.
Chris is married with three children. Donations are needed to help Chris and his family during what is expected to be a long recovery. The family is staying near Chris while he is hospitalized, which may be as long as three to four weeks. Financial help is needed to cover the cost of hotels, food, transportation, and a lengthy period of reduction in wages.
