Kids set up lemonade stand to support Dallas officer

Posted: Updated:

A group of Dallas children set up a lemonade stand recently to raise money for a Dallas police officer wounded during a shootout last month.

The Lakewood Trails Neighborhood Association wanted to help officer Joshua Burns after the Dallas Police Department invited homeowners to a cookout for him.

Burns was hit in the shoulder, chest and leg while answering a domestic disturbance call at a northeast Dallas apartment complex on Feb. 15. He was later released from Baylor Hospital and is expected to fully recover from his wounds.

Officers stopped by the stand near White Rock Lake to buy treats from the volunteers.

Rakeem Perkins was arrested and charged for allegedly shooting Burns. His mother took him to Dallas police headquarters to surrender.

His bond is set at $2 million.
