KPD Ends Standoff Without Incident

Officers responded to the 3000 block of Cantabrian Dr., on Saturday, December 26, 2015, at 9:22 pm, after receiving 911 calls of a disturbance and shots being fired. Upon the officer’s arrival, they were informed that the armed male suspect fled into his apartment. Officers tried speak with the suspect but he barracked himself in his house and refused to come outside.

The Tactical Response Unit was deployed to the scene at 9:44pm. The team attempted to negotiate with the male, advising him to surrender, however he continued to ignore their commands; therefore TRU Officers breached the apartment and made entry at 12:35am. The 25 year old, suspect was taken into custody, without incident, and transported to the Killeen City Jail. His name has been withheld pending the return of formal charges by Bell County District Attorney’s Office.

This case continues to be investigated and information will be released as it becomes available.
