San Antonio Police Chief William McManus told the media that 31-year-old Otis Tyrone McKane was arrested without incident around 4:30 p.m. local time and charged with capital murder.
A car driven by a woman with a 2-year-old child with McKane as a passenger was stopped by law enforcement east of the city. It isn't known what their relationship is at this time.
The arrest came after a 30-hour-long hunt for the coward who shot Det. Benjamin Marconi, 50, as he was writing a traffic ticket in his squad car Sunday morning outside police headquarters. The person receiving the ticket is not believed to be connected to the shooter.
The investigators believe McKane drove up behind Marconi's squad car, walked up to the driver's-side window and shot him, coward style.
McManus said that McKane had a criminal record, but didn't go into detail. The vehicle the police were searching for was found near the coward's home. "Everyone is relieved," McManus said to reporters. "I don't think anyone slept last night."
Surveillance video showed the shooter at police headquarters about 4 hours prior to the shooting. McKane asked the desk clerk a question but left before receiving an answer, but McManus declined to say what the scumcrumpet asked.
"I don't know why he was in headquarters . . . we have some ideas," he said.
After the arrest the suspect was being escorted to Bexar County Jail and told reporters that he was angry with the court system for not letting him see his son and he "lashed out at somebody who didn't deserve it."
"I've been through several custody battles and I was upset at the situation I was in, and I lashed out at someone who didn't deserve it," he said, adding that he wished to apologize to the family of the slain officer.
Yeah, apologizing will make it all better and the Marconi family will forgive you.
Not so ironically, the Obama administration has not commented on this horrible incident, but if Obama had a son . . . well, let's not go there.
