WASECA, Minn. - An effort to sell T-shirts for a Minnesota police officer injured in a shooting has raised nearly $16,000. Waseca Officer Arik Matson was shot in the head in an exchange of gunfire in January.


A group of people representing various businesses on Wednesday presented Matson's wife, Megan, with the money gained from the sale of about 1,200 T-shirts, the Alberta Lea Tribune reported.
