Four police shootings in three states on Sunday that left one officer dead and three wounded had authorities across the country grappling with the sudden burst of violence — and preparing for more on Monday. And in one city, San Antonio, where 20-year veteran Det. Benjamin Marconi was shot dead on Sunday morning during a traffic stop, the police chief offered a chilling assessment of the suspect's possible motive. "I feel we were targeted," William McManus told reporters Monday. "I think the uniform was the target and the first person who happened along was the person he targeted." Otis Tyrone McCain, 31, was captured Monday afternoon in connection with Marconi's killing, McManus said. The news came amid an FBI-assisted nationwide manhunt.
