They knew roy brown, and his son jay.

James andrew, 3rd shift police officer "with having two people shot in a family, we just thought that'd be the best way to help."

That help-- coming from a go-fund me account that has now raised more than 7 thousand dollars.

James andrew, 3rd shift police officer "we're in ihop at least 4 or 5 nights a week.

He always took real good care of us, so we just thought we'd try to do something to help the family."

Officer andrew says he wanted to help the brown family fast, but had no idea the go fund me account would get this much attention.

James andrew, 3rd shift police officer "the family is definitely overwhelmed by all the support from the community."

Officer andrew says the ihop hasn't fully reopened since the shooting ... their night shifts are limited.

James andrew, 3rd shift police officer "all 3 sons worked for ihop so it's really hurt the family all the way around, so anything that they can do to help is greatly appreciated.

Officer andrew told me the entire family was able to attend roy brown's funeral today.

His son jay, who was wounded in the shooting, is out of the hospital and slowly recovering.
