Though they look like just T-shirts, they are really a memorial to fallen deputies Zack Parrish and Heath Gumm.
"Obviously devastating to know that in such a short period of time, we're dealing with a similar incident," Mic Otto said.
Otto is a police officer and the owner of a firearms business called Full Otto Tactical. He has teamed up with Luke Burton, the owner of Huston Graphics and Printing to create a fundraiser for the family of Zack Parrish. Parrish, a Douglas County Sheriff's deputy, was killed over New Year's weekend.
"There are so many officers out there getting killed just trying to do their job," Otto said.
While the screen prints were still on the presses for Parrish's shirts, they got news of Adams County Deputy Heath Gumm killed while on the job Wednesday night.
"Just two of them that close together, it just makes you sick," Burton said.
The initial costs of the shirts are covered by donations from businesses.
"It's $25 for every shirt, One hundred percent of that is going to the families," Otto said.
They already have a check of $6,600 for the family of Parrish.
"If the money we raise, helps that family in any little way, I'm really honored to be part of that," Burton said.
Now, they are making a similar shirt to raise money for Gumm's family. If you are interested, please click here: https://www.hustongraphicsandprinting.com/online-stores/deputy-gumm-fallen-hero-fundraiser/.
Otto says even years later, these t-shirts will always be something more than just a shirt.
"A lot of people are proud to go out and wear those shirts in public and say, you know what, I support this fallen hero and still to this day, we remember this hero," Otto said.
