Chandler Police say donation accounts have been set up for two of their officers who were shot by a suspect last weekend at a Walmart.

Donations can be made at any Wells Fargo Bank. The two accounts are under each officer's name: Officer Joshua Pueblo Donation Fund and Officer Daniel Colwell Donation Fund.

Officer Pueblo and Colwell responded to the Walmart near Arizona Avenue and Pecos Road on April 23 to remove a man who was trespassing on the property.

The man, identified as 24-year-old Mitchel Oakley, exchanged gunfire with the officers and was ultimately killed at the scene.

Officer Pueblo was shot in the face and remains hospitalized. On Wednesday, he was transferred out of the Intensive Care Unit.

Officer Colwell has been released from the hospital to recover at home.
