TARPON SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) - Memorial services for a Tarpon Springs police officer who was fatally shot while on duty have been scheduled.

The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday that services for Charles Kondek will be held in Hillsborough County on Saturday.

Kondek was gunned down on Sunday after responding to a noise complaint outside a small apartment building. Sheriff’s deputies have arrested 23-year-old Marco Antonio Parilla Jr. in connection with the killing.

The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office reports that Parilla went to the apartment building to confront someone who he believed had snitched to authorities about his drug activity. He had been on probation and was wanted on charges of violating those conditions.
