Suspect in fatal police shooting upset over custody battle

(AP) The suspect arrested in the ambush shooting of a San Antonio police detective says he was angry about a child-custody battle and "lashed out at somebody who didn't deserve it."



Otis Tyrone McKane was being led by police to the Bexar County Jail late Monday when he told reporters that he was angry with the court system for not letting him see his son and took it out on Detective Benjamin Marconi.



The 31-year-old suspect was arrested on a capital murder charge Monday afternoon in the fatal shooting of Marconi. The detective was shot as he sat in his squad car Sunday after making a traffic stop. Authorities say a gunman walked up to Marconi's driver's-side window and fired.



It was one of several weekend attacks against law enforcement in multiple states.
