Work Day Planned For Local Wounded Officer (How You Can Help)
ROBERTSON COUNTY TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – It’s a day every officer hopes will never come. On October 5th, that day came for Metro Officer Samuel Galluzzi, 24, of Robertson County who was shot twice during the pursuit of an armed suspect in Nashville. One bullet shattered the bone above his right ankle. Officer Galluzzi will require months of rehabilitation.
Now the community is reaching out to the Galluzzi family with some good old-fashioned elbow grease.
Officer Galluzzi and his wife purchased a home in the Robertson County area in 2017. The home is in need of tree removal, drainage work, ground leveling, brush removal, wood cutting, and landscaping. Sam had plans to do the work himself this fall.
