Sad Day In Texas

From the San Antonio Express: A veteran San Antonio police in the in the Special Victims Unit shot and killed before noon Sunday while performing a routine traffic stop near police headquarters downtown, officials said, prompting a citywide search for the gunman.
SAPD Chief William McManus said the shooting occurred on the south side of SAPD headquarters, at 11:45 a.m. where the officer, identified as Detective Benjamin Marconi, 50, was issuing a traffic citation. As he did so, a black vehicle pulled up behind the officer's unit.
The suspect got out of the car, walked up to the passenger window and fired one round into the patrol car, hitting Marconi in the head, McManus said. He said the suspect reached in and fired again, hitting the officer.

All signs point to a calculated murder with signs of of a hate crime against the police officer.
Prayers to the family, officers of the police department friends and RIP to the officer
