Donations continue to pour-in for the widow of a U.S. marine who was shot and killed outside a Lexington nightclub two weeks ago.

More than $30,000 has been raised through websites, taxi rides and community fundraisers.

Lexington Police said Megan Price and her husband, Lance Corporal Jonathan Price, were leaving Austin City Saloon around 1:30 Saturday morning, June 21st, when they were robbed.

Police said Megan was shot in the leg and survived.  Her husband was shot in the back and died.

The community has stepped-up to help support Megan.

Post Salon and Prince Cuts both held a cut-a-thon and silent auction over the weekend raising around $6,000.

Yellow Cab of Lexington gave a dollar for every cab that was called on Friday and Saturday.  It donated a check for more than $1,200.

A website, set up by Megan’s friends, has raised more than $24,000.

“Everybody trying to help turn a negative situation and bring a little positive light to it,” said Jennifer Jeffries, a manager at Posh Salon.  “The amount of love that Megan and her family feels and Jonathan’s family feels is very overwhelming to them.”
 
Lexington Police said they have two suspects in the shooting but no arrests have been made.
