Benefit concert planned to honor fallen Mooresville K-9 Officer Jordan Sheldon

All proceeds from the show will go toward a scholarship fund in memory of Sheldon for incoming cadets interested in the Mooresville K-9 unit.

MOORESVILLE, N.C. — A Mooresville brewery is holding a benefit concert this weekend to honor fallen Mooresville Police K-9 Officer Jordan Sheldon. 

The event was organized by singer/songwriter Kayla Vega, who wrote a new song called "Home," that pays tribute to the town and Sheldon. 

"Mooresville's amazing and I just really wanted to capture everything that everyone loves about Mooresville," Vega said. 

Sheldon was killed when he was shot during a traffic stop on May 4. Police said the suspect was found dead in a nearby apartment from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Hundreds of people lined the streets to honor Sheldon's procession as it came to Mooresville from Charlotte.
