MOBILE, Ala. (AP) – Police officer has been shot to death in Mobile, Alabama.
Lawrence Lawrence Batiste's duty police reporters that Sean Tuder was gunned down on Sunday afternoon. Batiste said one suspect has been taken into custody. However, he said he could not immediately confirm the death of the 19-year-old suspect fired the shot that killed Tuder. Taken as the suspect had several prior warrants.
Tuder was the second mobile police officer on the line of duty since February 2018. That's when Officer Justin Billa was killed in a standoff. And he is the second Alabama officer to lose his life in the line of duty this month. A Birmingham police sergeant, Wytasha Carter, was killed a week ago.
This is Officer Sean Tuder. The officer killed in the line of duty in #MobileAL today.
The suspect is in custody at this time.
We're sending prayers to the Mobile Police Department.
