For North Carolina Only
Governor Pat McCrory has ordered all North Carolina flags at State facilities in Cleveland County to be immediately lowered to half-staff through sunset on Friday, September 16. This order honors the life and service of Shelby Police Officer Tim Brackeen, age 38, who was killed in performance of his duty.
"Ann and I are offering thoughts and prayers to both the Brackeen family and to the Shelby Police Department for the loss of their colleague," said Governor McCrory. "Unfortunately this is another tragic example of the dangers those in law enforcement face in the line of duty each time they put on the uniform. The state is offering any assistance possible to help bring the individual or individuals responsible for his death to justice."
