Community Center Named for Fallen Firefighter Vandalized

Police say the vandals struck sometime over the weekend, at the Brenda Cowan Center on Devonport Drive.
Officials say an urn was ripped off its foundation and broken. Most of the flowers in a garden were ripped up and destroyed. In all, officials say the vandals caused more than $2,000 in damages.
So far, no arrests have been made.
The center was dedicated a little over a year ago.
It was named for Lt. Brenda Cowan, who was shot and killed in Fayette County in 2004, while responding to a domestic violence call.

    The fire department was responding to the call because a woman had been shot and was laying in the yard. In Fayette Co. the fire department are also the paramedics. They just happened to be the first unit on the scene and Ms. Cowan ran into the yard to help the woman who had been shot when she was shot herself by the woman's husband who was still in the house.
