A Chicago street was named in honor of a fallen police officer Tuesday.

A section of South Nashville at 53rd street was renamed "Officer Benjamin Perez Way".

The four-year police veteran was struck and killed by a train in 2002 as he was conducting a drug stakeout on Chicago's West Side.

Perez is survived by a wife and 3 children.
