BELTON — The man accused of opening fire on Killeen police officers in a deadly shootout earlier this month was indicted Wednesday by a Bell County grand jury.
Marvin Louis Guy, 49, of Killeen, was indicted on three counts of attempted capital murder in connection with the May 9 shooting.
The shootout erupted when officers from the Killeen SWAT team attempted to serve a narcotics warrant on Guy’s apartment. Police said Guy shot at the officers, hitting four of them.
One of the shots struck 18-year department veteran Detective Charles “Chuck” Dinwiddie in the face. Dinwiddie died May 11.
Two of the officers, identified in an arrest affidavit as Xavier Clarke and David Daniels, were protected by their body armor. Another officer, Odis Denton, was hit in the leg.
The three charges brought against Guy on Wednesday specifically related to the shooting of Denton, Daniels and Clarke. Attempted capital murder is a first-degree felony, punishable by up to 99 years in prison, per charge.
Guy has not been charged in Dinwiddie’s death; however, District Attorney Henry Garza said Wednesday that his office and the Killeen Police Department continue to gather information. Garza indicated his office will file additional charges against Guy.
“(Information is) being gathered with the purpose of serving an additional charge,” Garza said.
In Texas, the murder of a police officer is a capital crime, and carries a possible sentence of life in prison without parole or death.
Guy is in custody in Bell County Jail. His bail is set at $3 million.
