SAN MARCOS (KXXV) -

The funeral for San Marcos police officer Kenneth Copeland who was shot and killed while serving a warrant was held on Dec. 13. 

The Combined Law Enforcement Associations of Texas, or CLEAT, said Monday that an officer with SMPD was serving a warrant, was shot and has died from his wounds. The San Marcos Daily Record said that the officer was serving a warrant in the Cottonwood Creek subdivision when the suspect shot him multiple times. 

The suspect was in a home and taken into custody after a standoff.

On Tuesday, Governor Greg Abbott ordered Texas flags in the City of San Marcos to be lowered to half-staff in memory of Copeland.

This comes days after the funeral for Trooper Damon Allen, who was shot and killed during a traffic stop in Freestone County on Thanksgiving. 

Copeland's visitation will take place at the Thomason Funeral Home in San Marcos on Dec.12 from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. and the funeral will take place at the Community Bible Church in San Antonio on Dec. 13 at 11 a.m.

Several law enforcement agencies from across Texas showed up to the funeral services.
