Police Officer Roy Turner was shot and killed at the intersection of Moore Street and Hillsboro Street while on patrol at approximately 9:00 pm.

Officer Turner was a member of the Neighborhood Improvement Team and was patrolling a violent and crime-intensive area when he was shot.

The killer was sentenced to death for Officer Turner's murder on October 22, 2002. On December 13, 2012, the killer's death sentence was commuted to life when a superior court judge ruled that racism was a factor in his sentence.

Officer Turner had served with the Fayetteville Police Department for five years. He is survived by his son, parents, and brother.
