Suspect in shooting death of SAPD Det. Marconi indicted for murder

SAN ANTONIO - A Bexar County Grand Jury indicted the suspect in the shooting death of a San Antonio Police Detective on Tuesday.

Otis McKane, 31, was indicted for capital murder of SAPD Detective Benjamin Marconi.

Detective Marconi was killed as he wrote a traffic citation for another driver just outside SAPD Headquarters on Nov. 20, 2016. Police said the shooter pulled up behind Marconi's patrol vehicle, got out of his car, walked up to Marconi's window and fired a shot, hitting Marconi in the head. He reached in again and fired a second time.

Det. Marconi died about 30 minutes later at San Antonio Military Medical Center.

The case is currently pending out of the 379th District Court. Capital Murder is a felony, punishable by death or life in prison without the possibility of parole.
