BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA) - Hundreds turned out to show support for one Bossier Sheriff's deputy who is battling cancer.

"It's been overwhelming. I can't believe the amount of people that have reached out to support him. None of these people know me, but I have made so many friends in this past month. It's very heartwarming" says Sabrina Lovell, Sgt. Barrett's sister.
In a matter of three hours, 570 plates were filled and sold. The event raked in over $4,000.
