SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The community gathered Saturday afternoon to hold a fundraiser for the family of fallen Escondido police officer Laura Perez.

The 25-year-old officer was allegedly murdered by her husband in a domestic violence dispute this past summer. A women's self-defense seminar was held at the East Valley community center to raise funds for the family, including her daughter who turned 5 on Saturday.
