Funeral services set for Texas police officer Kenneth Copeland
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.
