Word order does matter in Latin. It is inflected.

You can't use in with accusative case. Can you?

You can when you are talking about movement: Here, Marcus is moving himself towards (into) the city.

When in + ablative would be used more to specify where something occurs or is located. Marcus in urbe est -> Marcus is (already) in the city.
