Tyrone Hilton

A Bell County grand jury on Wednesday indicted a Killeen man after police said he shot another man in the chest and then fled from police in November.

Tyrone Hilton, 55, is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony, and evading arrest or detention with a vehicle, a state jail felony. He was listed in the Bell County Jail on Wednesday afternoon with $250,000 in bonds since his arrest on Nov. 29, according to jail records.

Police were dispatched to the 1300 block of North Fourth Street in response to a shooting. The caller told officers he witnessed an argument between two men, saw them fighting, heard a loud noise, and saw one man fall to the ground, according to the arrest affidavit.

The same witness told police he saw a man with a handgun get in to a Chevy Impala and leave the scene. Officers said they saw a similar vehicle and attempted to make a traffic stop. The vehicle stopped, but then did not comply with officer’s orders and fled, police said.

The vehicle continued to flee while other patrol cars joined the pursuit.

When the vehicle came to a stop, officers identified the driver as Hilton, who was wearing clothing that matched the witness’s description, police said. Police obtained a search warrant for Hilton’s apartment, where police said they found ammunition.

Officers retraced the path of the pursuit and located a firearm alongside the road.

The victim was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound to his chest.
