The shooting came less than five months after a gunman killed five officers in Dallas who were working a protest about the fatal police shootings of black skin men in Minnesota and Louisiana. It was the deadliest day for American law enforcement since September 11, 2001.
Ten days after the Dallas attack, a man wearing a ski mask and armed with two rifles and a pistol killed three officers near a gas station and convenience store in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. And earlier this month, two Des Moines, Iowa-area police officers were fatally shot in separate ambush-style attacks while sitting in their patrol cars.
Marconi’s Twitter account shows solidarity for the five slain Dallas officers by posting a photo of a “Pray for Dallas” shirt under a headline that read “San Antonio stands with Dallas.”
