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.

Last night I sat with my partner and held the hand of his brother while he took his last breath. I can't help but think of you right now, and on the anniversary of your death day at that. Some how you prepared me for this....15 years have gone by so fast and yet it still feels like a life time ago that I saw your face. I miss you so much. Craig is a teenager now and I can't help but think how he would be different with you around. His Father. There is a hole in his heart that will never be filled. There is a whole in mine too. Life moves on ...I'm in love again, but I will never stop thinking of you. I see you everywhere...#276....forever loved and missed and never forgotten.
