The Mobile Police Department lost another one of its own yesterday.
30 year old officer Sean Tuder was shot and killed while trying to arrest 19 year old Marco Perez.
Perez was wanted for federal gun charges and according to police, had faked his own kidnapping weeks ago. His mother was arrested Thursday in connection with the kidnapping hoax.
Perez is behind bars facing a Capital Murder charge, and his father is speaking out and apologizing to the victim's family.
Officer Tuder had been with the MPD for 3 years; in July 2017, he was named Officer of the Month.
