Second Annual Joel Wahlenmaier Shooting Competition
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Dozens of people took part in a shooting competition today to honor the life of a Fresno County Sheriff's Deputy killed in the line of duty.
About fifty people competed in the Second Annual Joel Wahlenmaier Shooting Competition. Wahlenmaier was killed along with Reedley Police Officer Javier Bejar after a gun battle with an arson suspect in Minkler three years ago.
Money raised from the shooting competition goes toward a scholarship for the police academy. Organizers say a shooting competition is a great way to keep his legacy alive and also support the academy.
The winner was awarded a gun donated by LR Stones Firearms. Organizers say the competition raised more than $1,000, and they hope to raise even more next year.
