KPD Investigates an Aggravated Assault against a Police Officer
Officers responded to the 3700 block of Charolais Drive in reference to a Criminal Mischief on Sunday, September 3, 2017, at 8:47 p.m. Upon the officer’s arrival, the victim told him the windows to their apartment had been shot out. While on scene, the officer heard a shot fired from what he believed to be a high-powered pellet rifle and the sound of the projectile impacting nearby. The officer immediately grabbed the victim and moved them inside the residence for safety. The officer immediately radioed for assistance and then heard a second shot fired towards him. He maintained a position of cover and directed other officers to the suspect, who had been firing from an open window of a nearby residence. The 16 year-old juvenile suspect was taken into custody without incident and was transported to the Bell County Juvenile Detention Center. There were no reported injuries reported as a result of this incident.
The name of the suspect will not be released since he is a juvenile.
