For North Carolina Only
Governor Pat McCrory has ordered all North Carolina flags at State facilities in Mecklenburg County to be immediately lowered to half-staff through sunset on Saturday, May 7. This order honors the life and service of Pineville Volunteer Firefighter Richard Sheltra, age 20, who died in performance of his duty. Services for Firefighter Sheltra will be held on May 7 in Charlotte.
"My heart is broken for Firefighter Sheltra and his family," said Governor McCrory. "His service to the Pineville community as a volunteer firefighter was courageous and honorable. Richard Sheltra, and all first responders in North Carolina, are our everyday heroes who put their lives on the line for us. They deserve our gratitude and our praise."
