Memorial to fallen officers dedicated

Hundreds of people packed St. Joseph Catholic Church in Bloomfield today to remember three police officers killed two years ago and to dedicate a memorial in their honor.

Their service to the community will never die, will never be forgotten,” the Rev. John Dinello said of Officers Paul J. Sciullo II, Stephen Mayhle and Eric G. Kelly, who were killed by a gunman in Stanton Heights on April 4, 2009. “They watch over us from heaven.”

The memorial statue is of a strong but sorrowful St. Michael the Archangel, the patron of police officers, standing on a mosaic pedestal with embedded photographs of the three officers. It was erected in a small memorial garden on land granted by both the City of Pittsburgh and the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh. Money is still being raised for the memorial, partly through the sale of small memorial police shields bearing the number 4/4/09.
