Texas Officer Killed Serving Warrant Identified

San Marcos police officer Kenneth Copeland died Monday afternoon while serving an arrest warrant in a violent crime case. Officials said that though he was wearing a protective vest, Copeland later succumbed to his wounds at Central Texas Medical Center.

Chief Stapp said the loss of Officer Copeland is painful for many in the police department. Stapp said it was unclear if the wound was self-inflicted or inflicted by police gunfire. Police have not yet disclosed the condition of the suspect.

San Marcos is about 30 miles south of Austin. 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. His fellow officers put him in a patrol auto and rushed him to the Central Texas Medical Center.

A suspect was taken into custody after he surrendered to law enforcement following the shootout. "They're simply trying to protect us from harm and that's what officer Copeland was doing today", said Lumbreras. Children who were on school buses getting ready to leave for the day were brought back inside.

"Ken's a hero", Stapp told reporters. He worked just about every day off to provide for his kids and because he knows that we're short-handed and need the help.

"His picture's hanging in different parts of this Police Department because everybody loved him". The officer was reported to be with other officers while serving the warrant.
