T-shirts bring in $16,000

WASECA (AP) — An effort to sell T-shirts for a Minnesota police officer injured in a shooting has raised nearly $16,000, supporters said.

Waseca Officer Arik Matson was shot in the head in an exchange of gunfire in January. A group of people representing various businesses on Wednesday presented Matson’s wife, Megan, with the money gained from the sale of about 1,200 T-shirts.

Megan Matson said every penny counts toward her husband’s recovery and he is making steady progress.
