The Mooresville (NC) Police Department says it has been "overwhelmed" by the show of support from its community after one of its officers was fatally shot during a traffic stop over the weekend.
According to the Charlotte Observer, the department posted photos of Officer Jordan Harris Sheldon's SUV outside police headquarters, showing it has been covered with flowers, notes, balloons and stuffed animals.
The agency said on Facebook, "The recent outpouring of support from our community has been amazing. We thank each and every one of you for your kind words and deeds during this difficult time."
Officer 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 died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
