"Officer Down" Fund honors a fallen detention officer

Posted by Debra Worley - email

NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Officers, friends, and family gathered Tuesday afternoon to present a donation to the family of a New Hanover County detention officer who was killed by her former boyfriend last year.

27-year-old Tarica Pulliam, who was a single mother of a 7-year-old daughter, was shot and killed outside her apartment as she was walking to her car in August 2008.

Tuesday, Pulliam's family was presented with a $1,000 check.  The "Officer Down" Fund of the Community Foundation of Southeast North Carolina donated the money.

The family said they are incredibly grateful for the public outreach and help during this tough time.

Officials believed 30-year-old Anthony Antwand Bowen, Pulliam's ex-boyfriend, was responsible for the shooting. 

Pulliam had a domestic violence protective order against Bowen at the time of the incident.

Bowen shot himself in Onslow County a day after Pulliam's death.
