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.

Its a brand new year but still we're reminded of what we're missing without you here! Craig is growing up and becoming a little man. We miss you so much Roy. It seems like everyone you left went to their own corner. I'm trying to believe that's how its suppose to be, but I know, for sure, that you would have wanted your son to be part of your family. Or maybe not...I know I'm a little crazy but I can feel you.. And see you in him.Thank you. We love you and miss you so much.
