Fallen Delaware trooper to be remembered at Georgetown candlelight vigil

Cpl. Stephen J. Ballard

(AP) – A state trooper killed last week is being remembered at a candlelight vigil in Georgetown.

The vigil for Cpl. Stephen Ballard is planned for Monday night on The Circle. Georgetown Mayor Bill West invites people to come out to honor Ballard in a Facebook post.

Ballard died Wednesday after approaching a vehicle with two suspicious people at a convenience store in New Castle County. Police say Burgon Sealy Jr. fatally shot the trooper and was ultimately killed after a lengthy standoff.

Police haven't discussed possible motives behind the fatal shooting.
