Fires in alabama in the last 30-days.

New information tonight.

We're hearing from neighbors in tuscaloosa after a police officer was shot and killed.

Luther watkins is charged with capital murder after authorities say he killed officer dornell cousette yesterday afternoon.

Tonight -- neighbors call the events eye-opening and senseless.

"it kind of wakes you up because these people put their lives on the line everyday for us and sometimes we take that for granted so its just really sad to hear i was in disbeleif didn't know what was going on so close to home.

Stupidy, there's too many young kids making dumb decisions."

Watkins will be held without bond as soon as he's released from the hospital.

Officer cousette is being honored in north alabama.

Waay 31's shosh bedrosian went to the madison county career technical center and saw what their program does for fallen officers.

Shosh on cam: the law enforcement program at the madison county technical center honors every officer who lost their life nationally and on this bulletin right here, they honor the 10 officers who have lost their life since the start of the school year.

Career technical center "we talk about the positive things like training.

We talk about how the numbers are hopefully going down, what causes it.

Everyone of these has a story behind it" "they learn something and they pass it on and talk about it and train for it and to teach the next group what happened and for it to not happen again" on tuesday, officers in the area draped their badges with black bars to honor officer dornell cousette who was shot and killed while serving a warrant.

Instructor stedham tells me he tries to prepare his students for all situations if they become officers through real- life training.
