The Clay County community is giving back to Detective Matt Hanlin.
Detective Hanlin was shot during a meth house raid in Middleburg.
During the raid his partner, Detective David White, was shot and killed.
Here Detective Hanlin shows where the bullet exited from his arm and his incision from surgery.
Monday night the community came together and held a benefit in his honor.
A skating benefit was held at The Skate Station.
Even though a lot of the people who attended the fundraiser never knew Hanlin they say it was the least they could do.
About 250 people attended the benefit.
The event raised $2,300 dollars to help Detective Hanlin and his family.
