San Marcos Police Officer Shot and Killed While Serving Warrant

Officer Kenneth Copeland 58

The San Marcos police officer shot and killed Monday afternoon has been identified as 58-year-old Kenneth Copeland, in what has become the first officer killed in the line of duty in the Police Department's history.

"As the San Marcos community and Police Department continue to mourn the tragic death of officer Kenneth Copeland, I've ordered Texas flags to be lowered in remembrance of his courage and bravery", said Abbott. The unidentified suspect shot at all officers on the scene, but Copeland was the only one hit - and the bullets struck parts of his body unprotected by body armor.

Copeland, who was wearing his protective vest, was taken to Central Texas Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

The suspect is said to be in an Austin-area hospital. "They're simply trying to protect us from harm and that's what officer Copeland was doing today", said Lumbreras.

However, the HP Envy X2 which also runs on Snapdragon, will be available "spring 2018", so we expect the NovaGo to be similar. When Ryzen Mobile was revealed in October, AMD claimed playable framerates in an ultrathin notebook form factor.

A suspect is in custody following a standoff with the San Marcos/Hays County SWAT. He worked just about every day off to provide for his kids and because he knows we're shorthanded and we need the help. They described him as a hard-working and well-liked member of the department and said he leaves behind a wife and four children.

Copeland joined the department March 30, 1998, serving SMPD for 19 years and 9 months as a Police Officer.

We pray for the family of the San Marcos police officer killed in the line of duty. As this story is developing, elements may change.
