GATESVILLE — A Coryell County grand jury this week indicted two Killeen residents suspected in a Copperas Cove shooting.

Andrew Norris, 27, and Misty Lane, 38, of Killeen, were each indicted on three charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Norris and Lane were reportedly at a July rap battle in the 200 block of Erby Avenue in Copperas Cove when a disturbance erupted, their arrest affidavits stated. The two left in a car with a third person only to return later with several other people in the vehicle.

One of three victims approached the car and tried to diffuse the situation, the affidavit stated. While talking to Norris, the victim realized Norris had a pump action shotgun between his legs.

After talking for 45 to 50 seconds, the victim started to walk away, the affidavit stated. Norris then allegedly exited the vehicle, “racked” the gun and shot. The victim was shot in the right hand and lost his thumb due to the injury. A second victim was shot in the right foot and left leg, and a third victim was shot in both arms.

When police interviewed Lane, she supposedly admitted driving her vehicle to the shooting, according to the affidavit.

  • Rosalind Ballard, 41, of Killeen, on a charge of theft, enhanced.
