Authorities in Texas were hunting a gunman Monday who was accused of killing a detective after shooting him twice in the face while he was writing out a traffic ticket to a motorist.
San Antonio police Chief William McManus identified the fallen officer as Benjamin Marconi, 50, a 20-year veteran of the force. Marconi was shot to death in his squad car late Sunday morning outside police headquarters, police said.
According to Fox San Antonio, the U.S. Marshals service took a “person of interest” into custody at around 9:20 p.m. local time but no further information was given on the person.
However, police said early Monday that the search for a male suspect was still underway and that no arrest had been made. McManus said he doesn’t believe the suspect has any relationship to the original motorist who was pulled over, and no motive has been identified.
