Liberty County Deputy Richard Whitten remains in the hospital in critical condition still since the May 29, 2019 shooting in Liberty County. A benefit was held for him today at Trinity Armory in Cleveland. With only just over 3 weeks to plan over 4,000 people attended. More than anyone had expected. What started out as selling BBQ plates turned into a huge event. By noon they ran out of food.having served over 800 pounds of meat. Hundreds of items were donated for a silent auction and even more for a live auction. Several police and fire agencies put their equipment on display. Deputy Whitten’s wife presented the TDC Tracking K-9 “Raider”, who found the shooter with a box of Kong’s. Several awards were handed out for persons directly involved in the shooting incident.
