Memorial for murdered police officers vandalized

EAST CHARLOTTE – A police memorial for two fallen Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police officers is still waiting for repairs.

Last week we reported an offer from Mayor Pro Tem Patrick Cannon to pick up the tab. After our story ran, a local company offered to do the work free-of-charge.

That deal never went through.

We talked to apartment complex managers on July 16th. They tell WBTV they're going to pay to have the work done.  They expect an estimate by Monday, and for repairs to be completed before the end of next week.

The brick monument is flowerbed, built in the shape of a cross to honor Jeff Shelton and Sean Clark -- shot and killed in 2007.

Vandals smashed the monument on July 6th--days after a CMPD officer shot and seriously injured Terrance Darden during a foot-chase.

Investigators have not said if the vandalized memorial is connected to that shooting. No word from police about any suspects.
