It was shooting for a cause Saturday at the Abilene Indoor Gun Range.

For every person shooting, the range donated half of its profits to the Abilene Police Department. The money is being used for the K9 unit, who are in need of new equipment.

The unit is allotted only $5,000 for the entire year, and the money raised will be put towards keeping the canines in tip-top shape.

The organizer of the fundraiser says, this may be the first of many events all geared towards improving the K9 unit.
