06 December 2017

A suspect has been taken into custody after a police officer in San Marcos, Texas, was shot and killed Monday afternoon while he was serving a warrant, authorities said.

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. The suspect was shot during the standoff and has been transported to an Austin hospital. Copeland is succeeded by his wife and four sons.

Chief Stapp said the loss of Officer Copeland is painful for many in the police department. "He worked just about every day off to provide for his kids and because he knows that we're shorthanded", Stapp added. It was not immediately known whether the suspect shot himself or was shot by an officer on the scene, Stapp said. It's also unclear if the suspect who shot Copeland was also the subject of the arrest warrant. "His picture is hanging in different parts of this police department because everyone here loved him", according to ABC affiliate KUVE. Officials said that though he was wearing a protective vest, Copeland later succumbed to his wounds at Central Texas Medical Center.

Gov. Greg Abbott issued his condolences to the slain cop's family and promised the shooter will receive "swift justice". The men and women in law enforcement put their lives on the line every day to protect and to serve our communities, and we will never forget their sacrifices.
