MOORESVILLE, N.C. — The Mooresville Police Department says it has been “overwhelmed” by a growing show of support after one of its officers was shot and killed over the weekend, including a growing roadside memorial surrounding the dead officer’s SUV.
Department officials posted photos of Officer Jordan Harris Sheldon’s SUV outside police headquarters, showing it has been covered with flowers, notes, balloons and stuffed animals. It’s one of several tributes that have taken place and more are planned, says the department.
Sheldon was shot and later died Saturday night after he pulled over 28-year-old Michael Aldana during a traffic stop. Aldana left the scene and later shot himself, Mooresville Police said Sunday.
