Police Officer Honored Years After His Death

A Corbin police officer died while lighting a Christmas star atop the city's water tower twenty seven years ago this week.

Friends, family and fellow officers honored Terry Shelby Friday.

They dedicated a new memorial shelter near the city's Rotary Park in his name.

Corbin Police Chief Carson Mullins worked alongside Shelby for years and says he was always serving others.

A nearby street was also dedicated as Terry Shelby Way.
