On Sunday, an Alabama Police Officer was shot and killed while say doing a follow-up investigation at Peach Place Inn. Police arrested a suspect in the case.


The suspect had been wanted for faking his own kidnapping amongst other crimes.

Officer Sean Tuder, 30, was shot by Marco Perez, 19. The suspect was found with prior warrants while Tuder was doing follow-up work on an investigation.


According to Police Chief Lawrence Battiste, the suspect was taken into custody. The shooting occurred in Mobile, Alabama.


Charges have been authorized against Perez by District Attorney Ashley Rich for capital murder. The suspect was wanted by Mobile Police on multiple charges for allegedly faking his own kidnapping.


Perez's mother, Tiffany Perez, 38, was arrested for helping her son fake his own kidnapping. The suspect filed a missing person's report for himself.


Perez was also arrested for property theft. It was also reported that the suspect was sought by federal authorities for probation revocation.


Tuder was with the police department for less than five years. Battiste said he "was really just getting into that part of his career where he started having a really major impact on not just the people in the community, but the men and women who work here in this department.”


In August 2017, the officer was named "Officer of the Month." He was praised at the time for "his numerous drug arrests, with four cases being sent for federal prosecution, and recovering six firearms."

The police chief asked the public to:

"Keep us in your prayers; keep Officer Tuder's family in your prayers, his wife, his mom and dad, his in-laws. This is going to be a difficult time."

On January 2, illegal immigrant Gustavo Perez Arriaga was charged for the murder of Newman police Cpl. Ronil Singh, 33. The police officer was shot on December 26 during a traffic stop.

Singh was married and had a 5-month-old son.
