Shirts sales honor fallen police officer

NEW CASTLE — Memorial T-shirts for Officer William J. “Jerry” McCarthy are now available at the Shenango Township Police Department.

The shirts also are available online at www.officermccarthy.com.

The prices are $10 for a short-sleeved and $20 for a long-sleeved shirt.

All proceeds from the sales are to be used for a scholarship to a local college and a grant to a local animal rescue group in McCarthy’s name.

McCarthy, who worked as a Shenango Township police officer, as well as a humane officer with the Lawrence County district attorney’s office, died when his cruiser was struck by another vehicle in New Castle May 2.

The woman who was driving the other car is awaiting a preliminary hearing on homicide by vehicle and other charges.
