Killeen Police Tactical Response Unit ends standoff peacefully on Hunt Drive.
Officers were called to the 2100 block of Hunt Drive on Friday, November 18, 2016, after receiving a 911 call at 12:55am, in reference to a domestic dispute where shots had been fired. Upon the officers arrival they spoke with a person who advised the male and female were having a domestic dispute and the male became angry and went outside. At some point, the male obtained a gun and fired into the residence while his family members were inside. The family was able to leave the residence safely, but the male barricaded himself inside; at that point the Tactical Response Unit was deployed. After securing the family and several hours later, the Crisis Negotiators were able to speak to the male and convince him to come outside and turn himself in. The male surrendered without incident and was taken into custody by S.W.A.T. officers and transported to the Killeen City Jail.
Detectives with the Criminal Investigations Division continue to investigate this incident. The name of the 28 year old male has been withheld pending formal charges from the Bell County District Attorney’s Office. Information will be released as it becomes available.
No one was injured during this incident.
