The GoFundMe site organized by a central Ohio Fraternal Order of Police chapter was created after Saturday's fatal shooting of the officers from Westerville in suburban Columbus. Candace Smith said she had found out that day she had been infected with a sexually transmitted disease, according to the report. She told police that when she "threatens to leave Quentin, he tells her that he would kill her, their daughter, and himself", the report said. According to a criminal complaint filed in Monday, Smith gave Lawson the money to buy the gun along with $100 for completing the transaction.

"My husband shot the police officers", the woman adds, telling the dispatcher she is hiding in the bushes while her one-year-old daughter is inside. According to police documents, Candice went to a police station in November to ask about protection orders. When they were home, they were home.
