A Fort Worth police officer shot last week while chasing two Parker County men remained in critical condition Sunday evening, Cpl. Tracey Knight said in an email.
Officer Matt Pearce, 36, was chasing a father and son in a wooded area Tuesday afternoon when he was shot multiple times with a handgun.
Ed R. McIver, 42, who had a long criminal record, was killed by police and his son was taken into custody. Ed McIver Jr., 20, faces several charges including evading arrest and attempted capital murder.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to help Pearce. And Sunday night, police sent out a social media appeal to officers from other agencies to send one of their insignia patches to the Fort Worth Police Officers Association “so that when Matt gets to feeling better he can see how many different agencies supported him during this time.”
