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.

    I usually leave a Saints game with an overall theme or feeling about what I just observed on the field. It typically jumps out at me right away and this column is written. But after Sunday I was left with kind of a blah emotion. Their effort against the Jets was kind of weird. It certainly wasn’t an overly impressive victory to celebrate, but nonetheless, a win in the NFL by double digits is nothing they have to apologize for. Dodging a bullet may be the more accurate descript...

    Juan's World: Saints ground Jets, look to Falcons rematch

    Welcome in to Juan's World and as you know, this blog that I do is strictly an opinion piece with a few facts sprinkled in here and there. So, with that in mind, I'm under the opinion that the Saints should've been 'expected' to look past the Jets to next weeks rematch with the Falcons. How could they not look ahead to Atlanta coming to the dome next Sunday. And before you go all 'One Game at a Time' on me, think for a second. You're supposed to beat the Jets, who came in 5-8 and wi...
