Fund Started To Help Widow Of Murdered Marine

Megan and Jonathon Price on their wedding day~August 2013

The community is getting involved, raising money for the widow of a Marine who was shot and killed in Lexington over the weekend.  

Police say 26-year-old Jonathan Price and his wife Megan were out celebrating her birthday at Austin City Saloon on Woodhill Drive in Lexington on Friday night, when the evening took a tragic turn.  The couple was allegedly approached by a would be robber who shot Jonathon in the back when he tried to protect his wife.  Megan Price was shot in the leg. 

Jonathan died a short time later at UK hospital where we're told his wife is recovering from non life-threatening injuries.  The couple was getting ready to celebrate their one year wedding anniversary.  Friends of the couple have set up a gofundme.com site in Megan Price's name with a goal of raising $15,000.
