Donations have been pouring in from across the state, nation, even the world for former Hearne Police Officer Stephen Stem. He was fired by the Hearne City Council on May 10, four days after he shot and killed 93-year-old Pearlie Golden.

The Go Fund Me account set up by a police officer in Alabama reached its goal of raising $5,000 late Friday night.

The plan is to keep the site up until Stem has a new job or financial stability.
