 Killeen Police investigate an afternoon Deadly Conduct on Veteran’s Memorial Blvd.

Officers responded to the 1300 block of E. Veteran’s Memorial Blvd on Monday, June 27, 2016, just before 4:30pm, after receiving a 911 call telling them a black male and a black female shot at the employees inside the shop.  As the officers were responding to the area, they were told the suspects fled in a gold Ford Crown Victoria and they were last seen traveling east on VMB.

An officer located a vehicle that matched the description of the suspect vehicle and was occupied by a black male and a black female but after further investigation, it was determined this was not the suspects involved in this incident.  The employees told the officers that the black male entered A Personal Touch Detailing asking for a male.  When the employees told him the male was not there he became upset, went to his vehicle and pulled out a handgun and shot at both employees.  The black male and the black female entered the gold Ford and as they were leaving, the female fired one shot at the employee.  No one was injured during this incident.

The officers searched the area but were unable to locate the vehicle at the time.  At approximately 6:00pm, officers responded to the 1800 block of Cedarhill in reference to shots fired.  The caller advised a male in a gold Ford Crown Victoria shot at an apartment building and a vehicle.  The suspect fled the scene before officers’ arrival.  No one was injured during this incident.

The detectives believe both incidents are involving the same suspect.  After further investigation it has been determined these two incidents are not related to any other recent shots fired incidents.

These cases continue to be investigated and information will be released as it becomes available.
