Killeen Police Investigate Golden Gate Shooting

Killeen Police investigate afternoon shooting on Golden Gate.

Officers responded to the 4600 block of Golden Gate Drive on Saturday, November 05, 2016, at 2:28pm, after receiving a 911 call in reference to a shooting.  As officers were responding to the area they were told the family was taking the victim to Metroplex in their vehicle.  Officers responded to Metroplex Hospital as well as the 4600 block of Golden Gate Drive.

The preliminary investigation revealed that two female family members were arguing and one of the females produced a handgun and fired a round.  Shortly afterwards the two year old male who was on the front porch was found to be shot.  He was transported by his mother to Metroplex Hospital and eventually transferred to the McLane’s Children’s Hospital in Temple, where he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased at 4:53pm by Justice of the Peace Ted Duffield.

The name of the victim has been withheld at this time.

The Killeen Police Department Criminal Investigations Division continues to investigate this case and information will be released as it becomes available.
