STATESVILLE, NC (WSIC) – A request for body cam footage to be released in the death of Mooresville Officer Jordan Sheldon has been withdrawn, according to the Town of Mooresville.
As required by state law for such footage to be released, a Charlotte TV reporter petitioned the court for the video to be made public. Sheldon was killed during a traffic stop earlier this month.
While some people shared their support for the reporter’s efforts on social media, one online petition against releasing the footage had more than 19,000 signatures.
