Battle Creek area residents continue to visit the online GoFundMe account set up for Officer Jeff Johnson and his family.  Officer Johnson was shot several times  over the weekend while attempting to arrest a wanted man outside a Battle Creek home. The suspect, 30 year old Andre Yarborough was later arrested and is being held on a long list of felony charges. Johnson has been released from hospital treatment but is facing a long recovery. The goal for the fundraising effort has been increased to $20,000.

The Battle Creek Community Foundation also has a fund established to help Officer Johnson’s family during the recovery period.

Johnson has 5 young children and is engaged to be married.
