McManus says Marconi had pulled over a vehicle and while he was inside his vehicle writing a ticket, a vehicle pulled up behind him. He says the driver of that vehicle got out, walked up to the officer’s driver-side window and shot the officer in the head.

Marconi is pictured third from the left on the top row. As an undergraduate member, he served Beta-Epsilon as the fraternity educator.

Marconi, a 20-year veteran, was rushed to San Antonio Military Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. He was a father of two.

On Nov. 21, police arrested 31-year-old Otis Tyrone McKane, a San Antonio resident, without incident. McManus said that he believed the attacker in San Antonio was going after a member of law enforcement rather than specifically targeting Marconi.

A memorial fund has been setup in his honor if you would like to make a donation.
