Allen Pearson - Lenoir County deputy killed in a shooting Tuesday, April 7, 2009
About 18 different softball teams signed up to come out and support the foundation of a fallen hero.
The Allen Pearson Emergency Services Foundation Softball Tournament took place Saturday afternoon at Bill Fay Park in Kinston.
Organizers says they plan to hold this softball tournament each year. Pearson as you may remember died in the line of duty just about six months ago when he was shot and killed near Grifton on April 6th.
His wife Katherine says she wanted to continue supporting an organization that Allen loved even as a kid.
