Blood Drive Today In Support Of Trenton Detectives [VIDEO]

The Trenton PBA holds another blood drive today in the name of two Trenton Police detectives shot and wounded while assisting a domestic violence victim.

Today’s blood drive will again be at Trenton Fire Department headquarters located at 244 Perry Street in Trenton from 12 noon – 6 p.m. 170 units of blood were donated during a drive on Monday according to Tony Deluccio of the the Community Blood Council of New Jersey, who says some people waited 2 hours in line to donate. All were accommodated according to Deluccio, who says members of the NYPD are traveling to Trenton to support their injured colleagues.

Detective Edgar Rios continues to recover from several surgeries on wounds suffered from shots to his abdomen when Eric McNeil opened fire on Rios and Detective James Letts when  Trenton police spokesman Lt. Mark Kieffer tells the Times of Trenton the 53-year-old Rios remains in critical but stable condition at Capital Health Regional Medical Center. Detective James Letts continues his recovery at home.

Earlier in the week Rios’ family issued a statement of thanks for the support shown by the community and law enforcement according to the Times of Trenton. “The Rios family would like to express our deep appreciation to everyone who has supported us during this difficult time through your kindness and prayers,” the family said. “We sincerely thank all of the medical personnel who have provided and continue to provide exceptional medical care to Edgar.”

A blood drive is also planned for the Trenton Free Public Library at 120 Academy Street in Trenton on Wednesday from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
