ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. – The Ladies Trigger Team from the Orange County Sheriff’s Department competed in the Riverside Emergency Services Team Member Association (RESTMA) shooting competition Saturday.
But they were not shooting for themselves. Their team, along with many others participated in the event to benefit the families of slain Palm Springs officers Lesley Zerebny and Gil Vega.
According to their Facebook page, everyone at the competition signed a thin blue line flag for the PSPD officers, and the Ladies Trigger Team donated more than $500 to the cause. RESTMA also donated all proceeds to the families.
