Wake County to honor the slain deputy during Monday’s rally

RALEIGH, NC (WNCN) – The Wake County Board of Commissioners will honor Deputy Ned Byrd Monday during a board meeting.

Byrd was shot dead on duty late Thursday night. There is no information on a possible suspect or motive.

The Wake County Commission meeting is scheduled for Monday at 2:00 p.m. in Room 2700 on the second floor of the Wake County Justice Center.

“Our thoughts and deepest sympathy go out to Deputy Ned Byrd’s family, friends and law enforcement as they mourn his loss in a senseless act of violence,” Wake County Chairman Sig Hutchinson said in a statement on behalf of all commissioners.

Byrd first joined the sheriff’s office as a correctional officer in 2009. Donnie Harrison was the sheriff at the time and Harrison said Byrd’s goal was to become an MP. He achieved this goal in March 2018.

Below is the remainder of the Wake County Board of Commissioners’ statement:

Officer Byrd died protecting the community he served and will always be remembered for his selfless sacrifice. Right now, the Wake County Sheriff’s Office and its partners are working around the clock to bring the shooter to justice.

We ask the community to remember that every shift in Wake County, men and women put their shields on their heads and step out the door to protect us, hoping they will get home safely. Gun violence not only affects community members, it also targets law enforcement officials, and we must work together to ensure these public servants have the tools, training and support to keep them safe.

Let us honor the brave men and women whose futures in service have been cut short.”
