SMPD Officer shot, killed in line of duty

A Texas police officer has died after being shot multiple times by a suspect while serving a warrant.

The city of San Marcos says Copeland's body will be escorted from the Travis County Medical Examiner's Office in downtown Austin to Thomason Funeral Home, located at 2001 Old Ranch Road 12 in San Marcos, Tuesday afternoon.

Reports state the shooting suspect also suffered a gunshot wound and was transported to an Austin hospital.

The officer, who has not been identified, was shot in the El Camino Real subdivision, about two miles south of downtown San Marcos. He is survived by his wife and four children, according to Dallas News. "They're simply trying to protect us from harm and that's what officer Copeland was doing today", said Lumbreras. "His picture is hanging in different parts of this police department because everyone here loved him", according to ABC affiliate KUVE. The officer was reported to be with other officers while serving the warrant.

But 53-year-old contractor Jose Luis Aguirre said the attempt to unilaterally break away from Spain "is an act that can not be allowed".

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) offered his condolences to Copeland's family and ordered the city's flags lowered to half-staff in his honor.

It happened near Bowie Elementary School located at 4020 Monterey Oak around 3 p.m.

"I can tell you, I saw a lot of crying", he said. We remember the sacrifices our men and women in law enforcement make every day.

"Along with everyone learning of a San Marcos police officer's murder today, I am deeply troubled and saddened". "There's only a few that really mesh with our environment, and Ken Copeland was so highly respected".
