On May 6th, a 37-year-old bus driver named Phuoc Lam was shot and killed in a road rage incident in San Jose, California. And police are still looking for the gunman. (The victim's name is pronounced Fook Lahm.)
Phuoc didn't have any savings, and was working seven days a week to stay afloat. And his wife . . . who speaks almost no English . . . didn't even know how she'd pay RENT next month. They also have two young sons, including one who's autistic.
Luckily, one of the cops investigating decided to go above and beyond. Huan Nguyen immediately took an interest in the family, because they're Vietnamese immigrants like he is. And he ALSO has two kids. (His name is pronounced Hwan When.)
So when he found out about their money issues, he started texting all his friends asking for help. And he encouraged other officers to do the same, hoping to raise a few thousand bucks.
Then he set up a fundraising page on the site YouCaring.com. And in three weeks, complete strangers have donated over $100,000.
Huan says he usually tries not to get emotional when it comes to being a cop. But this time it was too much, and he knew he had to help. You can donate by going to YouCaring.com/SanJose15Homicide.
