These first responders offered assistance on March 12, 2023 when Sullentrup and his partner, Sgt. Mason Griffith, were shot by a man they were trying to arrest. Griffith did not survive.

Sullentrup attended the gathering on Saturday. His family tells FOX 2 he continues to make progress with his recovery.
