Several months back the Henderson County Sheriff's Department planned a blood drive for today, having no idea they'd be mourning the death of two of their deputies.
But it was in their honor why some residents gave blood. We spoke with one donor, who knows injured Deputy Kevin Harris.
"I've talked to him several times over the last two years and he's just a good guy. I was worried about him," says Reddin.
Reddin says this is the first time in 30 years he's given blood and that he was sad it had to be under these circumstances.
