  • Mooresville North Carolina K-9 Officer Jordan Harris Sheldon was fatally shot during a traffic stop

Officer Sheldon was transported from the scene by medics but was later declared deceased.

The 32-year-old police officer was shot at approximately 10 p.m. while conducting a routine traffic stop.

A police officer in North Carolina was tragically shot and killed during a Saturday evening traffic stop. Aldana had been known by police but not for any violent acts, Williams said at a press conference.

"We're very grateful for the support we've been shown during this hard time".

The chief said Sheldon wasn't married but was involved in a relationship. "We are waiting to hear their wishes".

Takeaway coffee cup appearance in GOT this week...the jokes are endless
Like our Game of Thrones coverage? So it stands to reason that the white coffee cup with its sleeve does not belong in this scene. But some netizens also wonder if the coffee cup was inserted deliberately, to whip up further publicity for the show.

A Facebook events page was set up by the community Sunday to publicize events memorializing the officer, including a candlelight vigil held Sunday evening.

Sheldon's family is "distraught", Williams said.

Williams didn't give any further details on the suspect or why Sheldon had made the stop Saturday night.

The suspect, Michael Aldana, 28, fled the scene after the shooting, but was tracked to a nearby apartment building, Mooresville police said. Mooresville Police Chief Damon Williams identified the suspect Sunday as Aldana, of Mooresville. When officers entered the building, they found the suspect dead from a self-inflicting gunshot wound.
