AUSTIN (KXAN) — If you’re headed out to dinner Thursday night, you might want to consider Chili’s since 10 percent of sales Sept. 15 will be donated directly to the family of fallen Austin Police Department Officer Amir Abdul-Khaliq.

Ofc. Abdul-Khaliq died earlier this month after he was struck by a car while escorting a funeral procession on North Burnet Road. He is survived by his five children and wife.

The 17-year veteran with APD served in the Marines before joining law enforcement. He was a long-time member of the motor unit for the department.

From 4 p.m. – 10 p.m., Chili’s restaurants in Austin and the surrounding area will host a Give Back Event to support the Abdul-Khaliq Family Fund. Customers just need to mention the Abdul-Khaliq family to their server. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
