Community Reacts To Deputy Pearson's Death

Shock and disbelief. That's how many people in Lenoir County described their feelings towards the shooting.

Flags fly at half staff and there's a black ribbon on the Sheriff's Office door, part of what some people say is a way for them to express their grief and honor for the heroic actions of the two officers.

The funeral and memorial service for Allen Pearson has not been set just yet.

    TO THE PEARSON FAMILY. MY MOTHER IS A COP AND I WOULDNT KNOW WHERE I WOULD BE WITHOUT HER IF ANYTHING WERE TO HAPPEN BUT MY HEART GOES OUT TO YOU. GOD BLESS YOU! God made Angels And dressed them in Blue, He sent them to protect me And watch over you To take the Oath No others can take They will see the things That we only forsake They put their lives In front of all Only to leave their family Whenever Duty Calls We will never know Why God takes them away Only to know that We will see them another day For the Angels in Blue Hold their head up high When the job is finally done They will say Goodbye GOD BLESS ALL LAW ENFORCEMENT!
