San Marcos Police Officer Killed While Serving Warrant

Officer Kenneth Copeland

After a press conference was held late Monday, we learned that Ken Copeland was the first officer killed in the line of duty in the city's history - That's the reason the police chief says they're not accustomed to this. "Please join Angela and me as we pray for the officer's family, the people of San Marcos, and for our law enforcement officers around the state".

The wanted person shot the officer multiple times.

A thin blue line has been added to the San Marcos police badge in the department's lobby. He was rushed to Central Texas Medical Center where he died from his wounds. Officials said the suspect later came out of his house and surrendered to officers, but he did suffer a gunshot wound. He worked just about every day off to provide for his kids and because he knows we're shorthanded and we need the help. "His picture is hanging in different parts of this police department because everyone here loved him", according to ABC affiliate KUVE. It's also unclear if the suspect who shot Copeland was also the subject of the arrest warrant.

Despite wearing protective gear, the shots struck the officer.

The San Marcos Consolidated Independent School District said four area schools were placed on lockdown after the shooting. Cecilia and I extend our heartfelt condolences to the officer's family and to the entire San Marcos Police Department.

According to KXAN, Copeland was honored at a recent Cub Scouts program at one of the schools, Mendez Elementary.

"There's a lot of great officers", Higgins said.
