Bio: Jordan was born to Susan and Harry Sheldon in Charlotte, NC. He attended Bethel Elementary school, where he played soccer and baseball, and then J.N. Fries middle school. Jordan graduated from Central Cabarrus High School, where he played football.

Jordan graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte where he earned a degree in criminal justice. He completed the Basic Law Enforcement Training Program at Central Piedmont Community College in 2013, where he received the Marksman Award. He joined the Mooresville Police Department later that year.

Jordan was a member of the Honor Guard and served on the department's Special Response Team. In 2015, he was appointed to the K-9 unit, working with K-9 Loki. Upon Loki's retirement, Officer Sheldon took on a new K-9 partner, Ramon. He was a man dedicated to his career and took great pride in constantly doing the right thing, both on and off the job.

Jordan was known for being a good Samaritan his whole life - protecting others from bullies in school, being kind to strangers and going out of his way to help others. He carried these traits into his service as a police officer. Jordan was happy, kind, thoughtful, objective, charismatic and easy going. He was nicknamed 'Officer Smiley' and 'Shelly.'

Jordan was loved by everyone who knew him and always saw the best in everyone.

Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: Michael Yovany Aldana :: Caucasian / Male - 28 years old
   Pic 1    
Location:   Mooresville, NC   USA   Sat. May. 04, 2019
Summary: Officer Jordan Sheldon was shot and killed while conducting a traffic stop on West Plaza Drive at 10:00 pm.

He was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his wounds.

======================================================

The State Bureau of Investigation and Mooresville Police Department conducted an investigation, which revealed that the traffic stop was on suspicion of a suspended driver's license. Officer Sheldon called the traffic stop at 10:13 p.m.

After obtaining Aldana's license and registration, he returned to his patrol vehicle to check Aldana's information through the national database while Aldana was in his vehicle.

Results confirmed Aldana was driving on a suspended license, and Officer Sheldon approached the vehicle again and spoke with Aldana, who produced additional documentation.

While Officer Sheldon was examining the documents, Aldana fired a semiautomatic handgun at Officer Sheldon, who was struck by the gunfire.

Officials say Aldana then fled the scene, drove to his apartment off Plaza Drive and took his own life.

Investigators could not determine a specific motive for the shooting. However, interviews with Aldana's former girlfriend revealed he had made recent comments of killing himself and killing a police officer in the process.
