LINCOLN PARK, Mich. (WJBK) -

A Detroit police officer is in a coma in the fight of his life after a shootout with a suspect. That suspect died in the gunfire. Saturday, the community gathered to raise money to help pay for Pat Hill's medical expenses. He's a husband and father of four children.

Two officers were injured in the shootout at Hooker and Linwood about a month ago. Pat Hill, who was struck in the head, remains hospitalized in critical condition.

"Prognosis is unknown at this point," said Sgt. Michael DiCicco. "We're all hopeful, we've seen some good signs but we're still very concerned about him. We hope he comes back to us soon."

Jim Bowens, who lost his son, DPD officer Matthew Bowens, helped organize the fundraiser.

"It's heartbreaking but we're receiving tremendous support for Patrick," Bowens said.

Volunteers are hoping to help ease the family's financial burden.

    The case was originally about workplace discrimination. Now it's dragged on for more than a decade despite the case appearing to be one that the Suburban Mobility Authority for Regional Transportation can't win.
