Killeen Police Arrest Suspect from Domestic Assault

Killeen, TX (December 10, 2021) Killeen Police are investigating a felony domestic incident.

On Friday, December 10, 2021, officers were dispatched to the Day N Night Inn located at 6200 E. Veterans Memorial Blvd. in reference to a distressed female. Upon the officer’s arrival, they were told that the female was involved in a violent domestic and the suspect was possibly armed.

Through the investigation, it was revealed that the victim had been violently assaulted by the suspect at the hotel, when she was able to get away and call 911. Due to the nature of the call upgrading to a felony domestic, the Tactical Response Unit was deployed. After several failed attempts were made for the suspect to come out, officers deployed gas into the room. The suspect exited the room, remained non-compliant and attempted to walk back into the room. At that point officers used less-than lethal force and took him into custody.

Detectives with the Special Victims Unit continue to investigate this incident and there is no other information at this time.
