Police Officer Jeff Shelton and Police Officer Sean Clark were shot and killed after responding to a disturbance call.

At approximately 11:30 pm, Officer Shelton and Officer Clark responded to a disturbance call in an East Charlotte housing complex on Barrington Drive. They had investigated and resolved the disturbance, and were walking away when they engaged in a conversation with a man who had nothing to do with the disturbance. As they turned to walk away from him, the man produced a gun and shot both officers in the back.

Both Officers were transported to the Carolinas Medical Center where they died from their injuries.

The shooter fled the scene, but a suspect was later arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree murder. The suspect has five prior convictions for resisting arrest and assaulting a government official. On September 30, 2010, he was convicted of two counts of first degree murder and sentenced to life without the possibility of parole.

Officer Shelton had served with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department for six years and was assigned to the North Tryon Division. He is survived by his wife.

As always, and forever, I miss you my friend.

"From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother"
