Another tattoo looks similar to the Marine Corps seal, with an eagle sitting on top of a globe and the words ‘Semper Fidelis’ which is the Marine Corps motto meaning ‘Always Faithful’ in Latin. Below it are some non-English characters.

McDowell shot Deputy Moyers in the face and back, after being asked to step out of the car.

A $54,000 reward has been offered to find McDowell, officials said.

The sheriff’s office posted a tribute to Moyers on Twitter Sunday, saying, “Tonight we begin our 1st shift without you.”

“Tonight, we put on a brave face and hide the tears; as there is work to be done…As this night won’t be easy, we hope to soon bring this nightmare to an end. Rest easy knowing Bravo Team is carrying you with us. We love & miss you Moyers.”
