Colorado Springs Police Officer Cem Duzel was shot and critically injured early Thursday morning in Colorado Springs.

The Colorado Springs Police Department has set up several different ways for people to donate to benefit Officer Cem Duzel, who was critically wounded in a shooting early Thursday morning.

CSPD said people can donate to the CSPPA Fallen Officer Relief Fund by calling 719-634-0058 or sending a check to 516 N. Tejon Street, Colorado Springs CO 80903.

The Fallen Officer Fund is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization.

People can also stop in at 16 N. Tejon Street to make a donation in person.

Colorado Springs Police warned people about potential scam calls asking people for money to donate hours after the shooting. Police say no one should solicit those donations and to report them if they happen.
