'Sonny' Shegan, former deputy police chief, dies [Old Town Laurel]
Former city police officer Milan "Sonny" Shegan passed away April 26, 2013, at his home in Trout Creek, Mich. Originally from McKeesport, Pa., and a veteran of the Marine Corps, he served as a sworn officer in the police departments of Forest Heights, Bladensburg and, finally, Laurel. He was part of the team tasked to provide security when then Alabama Governor George Wallace was critically wounded while campaigning in Laurel on May 15, 1972. He retired in 1988 as Laurel's deputy chief of police.
