Rosfeld’s wife, Michelle, says that since he is unable to work, the family’s resources are depleted and they need financial assistance with his defense, which is not over after a civil suit is expected to be filed by the Rose family.

Similar fundraisers were set up to help Antwon Rose’s family following the shooting, but those have now been taken down.
