A memorial for a man who was killed after he reportedly ambushed and shot to death a 23-year-old rookie police officer in New Jersey has been removed, reports the Associated Press.
Mayor Steven Fulop says he ordered the city to take down the memorial to 27-year-old Lawrence Campbell on Monday night.
Fulop says he won't let the residents who put up the memorial pretend they express the views of the entire city.
The memorial had included candles, balloons, empty liquor bottles and messages of love from friends scrawled on T-shirts taped to a brick wall.
