Family and friends are hoping for a good turnout Saturday afternoon to raise money for a young Moniteau County man who was brutally shot during a February incident near Russellville.

A young man named Tagen was one of the three people allegedly shot by a 19-year-old from California. One victim was killed, while Tagen and another victim were seriously injured in the high-profile Moniteau County case. Tagen is still recovering from spinal and other injuries.

Tomorrow’s fundraiser begins at 5 at Centertown’s Apple Creek farm, and all proceeds will support medical expenses for Tagen. There will also be a cornhole tournament at 1:30 tomorrow, along with live music.
