Officer Perez was shot and killed while attempting to arrest a man who was wanted in another jurisdiction. Officer Perez and his partner were sent to a hotel after receiving a tip that the suspect was there. When the suspect refused the officers entry to his room, the officers opened the door using Managements spare room key. As the officers entered the room the suspect dropped behind the bed and opened fire, striking Officer Perez in the head. Officer Perez's partner returned fire, but did not strike the suspect, who then committed suicide. Officer Perez was flown to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead during surgery. ----source San Antonio Express News

  1. Years have passed but your old friends still pray for you Oscar. A bunch of cops just worked on Golden Park which reminded me of this. I dont want any one of my guys getting a park named after them. Fidel
