After the incident, Toedter's co-workers at Inland Truck Parts in Scottsbluff decided to rally together and help him out. 

On Saturday, Inland Truck Parts employees hosted a benefit to raise money to help with Toedter's medical expenses. 
Several local businesses donated items to be raffled off, and a car was also donated to be 'smashed' for money. 

Toedter's co-worker, Shawn Randall says Toedter has always been a positive guy and was overwhelmed at the community's support.
 
"I've worked with him for right at a year, of course he was shot right at his one year anniversary. He's been a great guy since
I've known him, he's always smiling, still smiling even sitting in the wheelchair."
 
The man accused of shooting and paralyzing Tim Toedter is facing an attempted first degree murder charge. 

William Schlager will be in Goshen County Circuit court for a preliminary hearing in July. (RELATED: http://www.kotanow.com/story/25658801/hawk-springs-restaurant-shooter-facing-july-preliminary-hearing)
