Killeen, TX (January 18, 2022): Killeen Police are investigating a shooting involving a robbery suspect.

On Tuesday, January 18, 2022, at approximately 10:09 a.m., officers attempted to make contact at a residence in Killeen with a suspect believed to be involved in multiple armed robberies in the city. That is when the suspect fled in a gray Nissan sedan and a pursuit ensued. The suspect led officers eastbound on Veteran’s Memorial Blvd towards Harker Heights, Nolanville and onto I-14. The suspect continued to travel at a high rate of speed into Belton towards Loop 121 and then headed back westbound on I-14. The suspect then took the Rosewood Drive exit and he wrecked out, disabling his vehicle. He then fled from his vehicle and attempted to hijack a nearby vehicle. When the driver of that vehicle noticed the armed suspect, he took out his firearm and discharged it at the suspect, protecting himself. The suspect was struck multiple times. The suspect was immediately transported to Seton Medical Center Harker Heights and subsequently airlifted to Baylor Scott & White in Temple.

The suspect, a 31-one year-old male, has an active warrant out of Dallas for Aggravated Robbery.
