Collierville Honor Guard presents colors at Titans game

After days, and even a year, marred by tragedy in Collierville, law enforcement officers of the Mid-South town enjoyed a positive moment on Sunday.

The Collierville Honor Guard presented the colors at the Tennessee Titans game in Nashville on September 25, displaying the Collierville Police Department flag, Tennessee flag and American flag during the national anthem prior to kickoff.

The honor for Collierville came just days after a man who was wanted for attempted murder allegedly ran over a Collierville Police officer with a car.

It presentation before kickoff of the Titans game also marked one year since a mass shooting in Collierville, just over 365 days since a disgruntled ex-employee opened fire at the Collierville Kroger, injuring several people and killing Olivia King.

“A bright spot in the last couple of days, the CPD Honor Guard was given the opportunity to present the colors at the Tennessee Titans game today. It was an honor to represent the Town of Collierville in Nashville. Good luck to the Tennessee Titans! Keep our injured officer in your thoughts and prayers as he continues to show improvements,” the Collierville Police Department posted on Facebook.

The Titans won that game, defeating the Las Vegas Raiders 24-22.
