HOUSTON, Nov. 20 (Xinhua) -- A police officer was killed by a driver on Sunday while writing a traffic ticket outside the police headquarters in San Antonio, a city in the southern part of the U.S. state of Texas.

The 50-year-old Benjamin Marconi, a 20-year veteran of the police force, had pulled over a vehicle later Sunday morning. When he was inside his vehicle writing a ticket, a vehicle pulled up behind him. The driver of that vehicle got out, walked up to the officer's driver-side window and shot the officer in the head, the suspect then reached into the window and shot Marconi a second time. He was rushed to a hospital but died Sunday afternoon due to his serious injury, San Antonio police Chief William McManus said at a press conference Sunday afternoon.

"This is everyone's worst nightmare," McManus said, adding that "It's always difficult, especially in this day and age, when police are being targeted across the country."

Until further notice, police officers will not be allowed to conduct traffic stops alone and they must have cover.

The suspect, who was as a black male wearing a hoodie, baggy pants, and possible facial hair, has not yet been arrested and a motive is not known.

Police are now looking for a black car which is believed to be the suspect's vehicle.

The shooting came less than five months after a gunman killed five police officers in the northern Texas city of Dallas who were working a protest about the fatal police shootings of black men in the U.S. states of Minnesota and Louisiana. It was the deadliest day for American law enforcement since Sept. 11, 2001.

Ten days after the Dallas attack, a gunman killed three police officers near a gas station and convenience store in Baton Rouge, capital city of the U.S. state of Louisiana.

Netherlands assistant coach Marco van Basten is to give up the role by the end of the year as the leadership crisis surrounding the side took another twist on Tuesday Will Redmond Jersey , a week before the Dutch kick off their 2018 World Cup campaign.

Van Basten is the second of Danny Blind's assistants to announce their departure in the last two weeks after Dick Advocaat opted to take over as head coach of Turkish side -Fenerbahce.

The Dutch soccer association (KNVB) confirmed the 51-year-old's impending exit on Tuesday, saying Van Basten was leaving to start work with the sport's global governing body.

"FIFA has offered me a chance to work in the development and reform of football, and to use my ideas and opinions over issues like playing rules, refereeing and development programs Sammy Watkins Jersey ," Van Basten said in a KNVB statement.

"I have agreed with Danny Blind to stay as an assistant -until the end of the year."

The loss of his deputy is the latest blow for Blind, who had asked another former European Footballer of the Year, Ruud Gullit, to assist him Anthony Hitchens Jersey , only for negotiations to break down.

The acrimonious fallout between Gullit and the KNVB has since dominated Dutch sports pages at a time when the team is hoping to make a positive start to World Cup qualifying after the disappointment of missing the Euro 2016 finals in France.

The Netherlands start their campaign to reach the 2018 World Cup finals away at Sweden on September 6.

Advocaat and Van Basten are both former national team coaches in their own right and were expected to form a powerful support team for Blind.
