Tarpon Springs Police Officer Charles Kondek fatally shot by a fugitive while on duty was mourned by family, friends and fellow officers at an emotional funeral service Saturday.

Officer Kondek was killed while responding to a complaint about noise coming from the car of fugitive Marco Antonio Parilla Jr., who police say admitted to shooting the officer and then fleeing the scene because he didn’t want to go back to prison. He also ran over Kondek’s body with his car, authorities said. Parilla who was wanted on a parole violation, was charged Monday with first-degree murder.
