WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — People showed their respect for Sgt. Mickey Hutchens of the Winston-Salem Police Department in two ways yesterday-- more than 200 took part in a blood drive at Forbush High School, and others left flowers and cards on Hutchens' patrol car parked at the city's public-safety center on North Cherry Street.

Hutchens, 50, died Monday night, five days after being shot in the face by a man fleeing police who responded to a domestic-disturbance call at the Bojangles' restaurant on Peters Creek Parkway.
