Pizza 9 donated 100 percent of the profits made Monday.

The general manager of the store said some people were coming in and just dropping money in a donation jar without ordering.

"It has been full about three times. We've had to empty it out," Ralph Holguin said. "It's been a great response. Lots of people coming in. It's been really great, busier than normally."

Those donating said they wouldn't think of missing the chance to help the fallen officer's family.
"We support every single Metro or police officer that there is in this state, and we are more than happy to come here and donate," Robin Reddle said.

The fundraiser took place at the Pizza 9 located at 3620 E. Flamingo Road Unit No. 5.
