CRIME

The victim of a gunshot wound was in the hospital Wednesday after an early-morning shooting left him with injuries that were not life-threatening, police said.

Officers responded to an apartment complex in the 1100 block of North 18th Street at 1:03 a.m. Wednesday in response to a call of shots fired, according to Killeen Police Department spokeswoman Ofelia Miramontez. They found a man with a gunshot wound and he was taken to Baylor Scott & White.

The case is ongoing and remains under investigation, Miramontez said.

A preliminary investigation determined the shooting happened during a verbal altercation between the victim and a female suspect, when at some point the victim was shot.

Officers are looking for three suspects wanted in connection with the shooting, according Miramontez.

The first suspect is described as a dark-skinned, black woman wearing unknown clothing.

The second suspect is described as a thin, dark-skinned black man, about 5 feet 10 inches tall, and last seen wearing white shirt and khaki pants.

The third suspect is described as a thin, light-skinned black male, about 5 feet 10 inches tall, last seen wearing a red shirt.

Time for the fake chief of police to be on his way. Time we get a real cop in that officer.
Time for Flem Flam fleming to go to another dist and destroy them to.

Vote NO on the BONDs, and Demand a real cop a cop that has a licenses and understands that police chief is more then just paper work and photo ops.

I guess the above poster is new to the city-- or is just a youngster who doesn't remember Killeen in the past. The above comment of his is so old and repetitive, and that shows immaturity.

That district slumlord he was talking about, Shirley "Flem-Flam" Fleming is old and repetitive.
