Army Sniper Veteran Killed in Hometown

America's Most Wanted: Steven Perez Homicide -- An absolutely chilling cell phone video taken by an unidentified witness shows the final moments of a military veteran’s life, CBS Boston reports. Stephen Perez, 22, who served two tours of duty in the Middle East with the U.S. Army as a sniper, was shot to death following a late-night brawl that erupted during a night out with friends in Boston’s Theater District last April. The video shows a confrontation arising after a woman said something to Perez and his friends, kicking their car as they were trying to leave. Perez responded and said something back, which prompted an all-out brawl between two groups of people. The fight was brutal — several punches were thrown, many connected. In the video, a man can later be seen retrieving a handgun from his waist, holding it steadily as he finds his target. Perez’s cousin told CBS Boston that his family can barely stand to watch the video.
