SMITHFIELD, N.C. - May 4, 2020 - PRLog -- A Kansas police officer fatally shot last weekend while pursuing a hit-and-run suspect will be honored posthumously with a special fundraiser for his family.

American lifestyle brand Shield Republic has introduced a new "Hold the Line" apparel fundraiser for Officer Michael Mosher of the Overland Park Police Department, who was killed on Sunday, May 3. He was driving to work when he witnessed a hit-and-run near the intersection of Antioch Road and West 143rd Street. After calling for backup and following the fleeing vehicle along Antioch Road, the suspect pulled over and opened fire.

In the ensuing shootout, both the suspect and Officer Mosher were fatally wounded. The officer succumbed to his gunshot wounds after being transported to a nearby hospital.

Officer Mosher served with the Overland Park Police Department for more than a decade. The 37-year-old, tenured officer leaves behind a wife and young daughter.

Shield Republic's Hold the Line apparel fundraiser will raise support for the Mosher family through proceeds from the sale of commemorative t-shirts, long-sleeved shirts, hoodies, ladies' tank tops and decals honoring the fallen officer.

"Officer Mosher was known by those who loved him as a good man and a committed public servant," said Charlie Romero, spokesperson for Shield Republic. "We know he will be greatly missed, so we hope our Hold the Line campaign brings comfort to his friends, family, and the Overland Park Police Department as we remember this hero in blue."
