The suspect, identified as Sammy Duran, 32, was eventually arrested. Police said Duran fired first in the shootout that left six officers injured.

"We are trying to help these kids out," said Wunder. "They got out of there with the shirts on their backs. Their house got shot up. They are just a couple of 20 something year-olds with a 15-month-old baby. They didn't have much to start with."

A beer company representative is donating beer and others are chipping in with cash.

Wunder has known the husband's family for 20 years. The couple, who don't wish to be named, are staying with family.

"The house looks like Swiss cheese," said Wunder. "They will eventually have to find some place to live."
