Funeral arrangements have been set for this weekend for San Antonio Police Detective Benjamin Marconi. He was fatally shot Sunday as he sat in his patrol car after stopping a driver for a routine traffic stop.

 

 

Marconi was a 20-year veteran of the police department. He was 50. His survivors include two adult children.

 

Visitation will take place from 3 to 7 p.m. Sunday, November 27th at Porter Loring on I-35 at McCullough. A rosary will follow.

 

About 2,000 police officers will be in San Antonio this morning to bid farewell to police Detective Benjamin Marconi.  Marconi, 50, was gunned down eight days ago while sitting in his patrol car, writing a traffic ticket. 

The man suspected of killing a veteran San Antonio police officer got married at the Bexar County Courthouse just 6 hours before his arrest, according to County Clerk records.

The County Clerk’s office issued a marriage license to Otis Tyrone McKane at 9:57 a.m. Monday—less than a day after police say McKane gunned down Detective Benjamin Marconi in a squad car outside SAPD Headquarters.

Nine-year-old Alicia de Hoyos carries a small bouquet to the growing makeshift memorial outside of San Antonio’s Police headquarters Monday, just down the street from where Detective Benjamin Marconi was shot and killed in a patrol car.
