Back in April, Officer Paul Sciullo was killed in the most violent standoff in Pittsburgh police department history. Paul is seen in his much younger years on the left, wearing the Steelers shirt.
Sean over at Pittsburgh Magazine has an excellent piece on Sciullo…how he grew up loving Mario Lemieux (ed – likewise) while eventually playing on the Central Catholic high school hockey team. Now, his school and team will honor him by retiring his jersey. It’s taking place at BladeRunners Ice Complex in Harmarville this Friday at 8 PM.
If you’re in the area, stop by and pay your respects. Admission is $3 for adults, $2 for students, and proceeds go to the Paul J. Sciullo II Memorial fund. The police do a thankless job, so show your support to someone who gave everything, and hit up BladeRunners this Friday for Sciullo’s jersey retirement.
