Fred Thornton, the CMPD officer who was killed last week in Mint Hill when a “flash-bang” device exploded in his garage, was honored at a memorial service in Charlotte yesterday. Fox Charlotte spoke to several of his colleagues as well as those who lined the street to honor the fallen officer.

WCNC also talks to fellow officers who say that Thornton was an average guy who loved his family, the Carolina Panthers, Coors Light and his motorcycle.
