DETROIT (WJBK) -

The family of a fallen Detroit police officer is reaching out to help the family of another hero in blue wounded in the line of duty.

Plans are underway to hold a fundraiser for the family of Officer Patrick Hill.  He was shot in the head last week and remains hospitalized in critical condition.

Officer Hill has a wife and four children.

Jim Bowens, who lost his son, Officer Matthew Bowens, in 2004, hopes the community can help them with donations.

"We need all the donations we can get to make this a huge success so his family won't have to worry about the medical bills and living expenses," said Bowens.  "Everybody get on board and help us, and everybody pray for the young man.  He needs our prayers more than anything."

The fundraiser for Officer Hill is April 27 at the Lincoln Park VFW on Fort Street.  It starts at 6:00 p.m.  Tickets are available at the door for $20.

    A dance party for kids and tweens looks like a rave or perhaps a wild night at the club. But actually, many of the people at this party probably just learned how to tie their shoes. Twin brothers Tyler and Tristin recently had a FUZIPOP party in Manhattan to celebrate their 10th birthday. Never heard of a FUZIPOP party?

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and the federal prosecutor investigating political payback allegations involving the Republican's administration are both set to speak at a prisoner re-entry conference on Thursday.
    Former NBA player Jayson Williams says trying to re-enter society after serving time for shooting a limousine driver was more difficult than being in prison.
