Police said they were serving a warrant at the home, but there appears to be no record of a local arrest or warrant for Mettz.

A police officer was shot and killed Monday while serving a warrant. He was rushed to Central Texas Medical Center where he died from his wounds. "Ken's a hero", Stapp said. "They are a part of our family as well and they did a great job".

Once medically stable, Chief Stapp said the suspect will be taken into custody. Stapp said it was unclear if the wound was self-inflicted or inflicted by police gunfire.

At a news conference, Police Chief Chase Stapp said Copeland had been with the department for 19 years. "He worked just about every day off to provide for his kids and because he knows we're shorthanded and need the help".

"His picture's hanging in different parts of this Police Department because everybody loved him". Children who were on school buses getting ready to leave for the day were brought back inside.

"We have to band together". He was shot at some point during the standoff, although police said it wasn't clear whether he shot himself or was struck by one of the officers' bullets.

Neighbors in the El Camino Real neighborhood expressed their sadness Monday that this had happened in their neighborhood. According to court documents, Mettz called his mother-in-law after an incident on November 25 and said, "You had better not file charges or you know what will happen". "I think you have to say it is a one-off". "Please join Angela and me as we pray for the officer's family, the people of San Marcos, and for our law enforcement officers around the state". We remember the sacrifices our men and women in law enforcement make every day.
