An online fundraiser has raised more than $50,000 for the family of a physician killed in his own Red Deer walk-in clinic in just 12 hours’ time.

A GoFundMe fundraiser has identified the Red Deer physician as Dr. Walter Reynolds.

Red Deer RCMP responded to a 911 call from the Village Mall Walk-In Clinic of assault in progress, with a weapon, around 11:00 a.m. Monday.

“On a normal Monday morning, life changed forever for the Reynolds family,” the fundraiser with a goal of $20,000 states.

“He was a devout father to two amazing young daughters and a loving husband. He loved to run, be healthy and most of all spend time with his family,” the fundraiser goes on to say.

RCMP will provide further details on Monday’s killing at noon Tuesday.
