KPD Investigates Shots Fired Incident

Killeen Police are investigating an incident involving shots fired that occurred in the area of Barrington and Michael Dr.

Officers responded to a 911 call on Thursday, June 23, 2016, at 6:32pm, telling them that a male in a maroon and gold pickup shot at another male in the area of Barrington and Michael Drive.  The officers arrived and were told that a male was walking in the roadway when a maroon and gold Ford pickup driven by a black male drove up behind the male and shot at him twice.  The male began running and was able to get away from the pickup.  The driver then drove east on Michael Drive, stopped at a residence, then left again traveling west on Michael.  Officers located the pickup and stopped it at the Star Mart on Stan Schlueter.  Witnesses identified the suspect and he was detained at that time.  The male was subsequently taken into custody and transported to the Killeen City Jail.   Shortly afterwards the residents at one of the houses in the area located a bullet hole in the front of their house.  The male victim was not injured and no one was injured inside the residence.

Detectives are continuing to investigate this incident and information will be released as it becomes available.
