CRIME

Killeen police officers dispatched to a fight Friday morning found a victim who had been attacked in her vehicle with a hammer, an official said.

“The investigation is ongoing,” said Ofelia Miramontez, Killeen Police Department spokeswoman, on Wednesday in an email.

Officers went to the 4100 block of Watercrest at 8:12 a.m., where police discovered “that the victim was approached and a verbal altercation turned physical between other parties involved,” Miramontez said. “The victim told officers she was attacked in her vehicle with a hammer and sustained physical injury and pain.”

The victim drove off, striking the suspect’s vehicle in the process, she said.
