A Mobile police officer was reportedly shot and killed in the line of duty. The officer killed has been identified as Officer Sean Tuder. They say the suspect, Marco Perez, who police say they have prior warrants on, is in custody.

In a press conference this afternoon, a spokesman for police said they’re asking for prayers at this time:

“To the family of our officer, to the men and women that wear the uniform and wear the badge– this is a time of grief for us. We’re trying to make sense of how we could have another brother lose his life in less than a year. We’re thankful to those who have reached out to us across the state.”
