SHENANGO TOWNSHIP, Pa. —
Viewing will continue Tuesday for a Shenango Township police officer who was killed in the line of duty last week.
Family and friends paid tribute to William “Jerry” McCarthy Monday at Saint Vitus church in New Castle. Viewing will continue at the church Tuesday from 1-7 p.m.
McCarthy’s funeral is planned for Wednesday and will be followed by a motorcade of police cars.
Shenango’s police chief told Channel 11’s Jennifer Tomzic that McCarthy was “everyone’s grandpa,” especially to the 10 other officers, all under the age of 25.
Police said Kylee Barletto was driving on a suspended license when she T-boned a police cruiser that McCarthy was inside of late Thursday night.
Officer Michael Lynch, who was driving the cruiser, was also injured in the crash.
Barletto is facing charges of homicide by vehicle and involuntary manslaughter.
