Gov. Greg Abbott has ordered all Texas flags in San Marcos and surrounding cities to half-staff in honor of Officer Kenneth Copeland, who was killed during an ambush-style shooting on Monday while he was serving a warrant. "Cecilia and I extend our heartfelt condolences to the officers family and to the entire San Marcos Police Department".

San Marcos officer Ken Copeland was killed after the suspect shot him multiple times, CBS Dallas reported. He died from his injuries about 3:50 p.m. after being transported to the Central Texas Medical Center. The suspect was also shot at during the incident and was taken to a hospital in Austin, police said. 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. He was rushed to Central Texas Medical Center. At a Monday night press conference, Stapp told reporters that Copeland had served with the U.S. Coast Guard and had been with the department for 19 years. "They're simply trying to protect us from harm and that's what officer Copeland was doing today", said Lumbreras.
