In Case You Missed It - 5 Years Ago Today Officers Clark and Shelton
It’s been five years, but the pain of this Saturday night will never go away for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.
Officers Sean Clark and Jeff Shelton were shot and killed at the Timber Ridge Apartments on March 31, 2007 by Demeatrius Montgomery.
At the site of the murder there is a permanent memorial cross.
For the first time the father of Demeatrius Montgomery visited the memorial.
“My respects go out to the officers loved ones I have a deep and heavy heart for them,” said Donald Guy.
Guy told NewsChannel 36, coming to the memorial brought back a flood of memories from that terrible night.
“I have not seen my son since the verdict and I have asked him over and over again to tell me what happened that night…not one reply,” said Guy.
He attended the trial everyday and reached out to the fathers of the two officers after it was over.
“That night eats at me daily,” he said.
Montgomery is appealing his 2010 conviction.
Cedar's Take: Officer Down Momorial Page for Sean Clark in here and Jeff Shelton is here.
Officers Clark and Shelton were shot shortly before Midnight on March 31, 2007 they both died on April 1, 2007 just after Midnight.
