WARREN, Mich. (WJBK) -

Monday during the lunch hour in Warren, Ken Calvert, Fireman Tim from the Farmington Hills Fire Department and the WCSX crew were collecting donations for the family of fallen Wayne-Westland firefighter Brian Woehlke.

Woehlke leaves behind a young wife and a 13-month-old baby daughter.

"When times aren't good, we try to band together and do what we can for each other," Tim said.  "Anything we can do for the Brian Woehlke family fund, we're out here doing today."

WCSX will be at Roy O'Brien Ford in St. Clair Shores and Malarkey's in Westland collecting more donations until 7:00 p.m. Monday.

"Malarkey's... is donating 10 percent of their profits today [Monday] to the Brian Woehlke Memorial Trust Fund," said WCSX morning man Ken Calvert.

If you can't make it to one of those locations, there are other ways you can donate, including in person at Fire Station 1 in Westland.  For more information, visit www.wcsx.com/BrianWoehlkeFund.aspx.

    Heavily armed police officers descended on a home in Long Beach, Long Island, Tuesday afternoon thinking they might find a grisly murder scene. Instead they found a terrified woman who had no clue what they were talking about and her teenaged son playing video games. "We received a phone call from a gentleman who stated he had just shot his mother and his brother," Long Beach Police Commissioner Michael Tangney said. "Unfortunately, this is a terrible national problem for law enforcement."

    An NYPD plan intended to better connect with the community seems to have backfired a bit. The police department asked its twitter followers to share pictures of themselves with New York City police officers using the hashtag "myNYPD." Some did share nice pictures, but others not so much.Some of the first pictures posted showed regular citizens standing with very friendly looking police officers.
