“I think it's a very harsh reminder, on any occasion when we lose an officer, that life is very fragile,” Police Chief William McManus told My San Antonio, “and it can be gone in an instant.”

The medical examiner ruled the death as complications of multiple blunt force injuries.

Services were held this morning for the officer, who had been with the San Antonio Police Department 19 months.
