A copy of a marriage certificate obtained by The Associated Press shows that 31-year-old Otis Tyrone McKane married a woman Monday morning at the Bexar (bayr) County Courthouse. He was arrested later that day.

Investigators say 50-year-old Detective Benjamin Marconi was shot Sunday while sitting in his patrol car writing a traffic ticket. McKane was apprehended when his car was stopped on an interstate. He told reporters he was angry about a child-custody fight and “lashed out at somebody who didn’t deserve it.”

No publicly listed telephone number could be found by the AP for the woman listed on the marriage certificate.
