Woman suffers gunshot wound after Saturday shooting

Shots rang out and one person was found suffering from a gunshot wound around 1 p.m. Friday in west Killeen, police said.

Killeen Police Department received a 9-1-1 call in reference to a “shots disturbance” in the 4500 block of Windcrest Drive, according to KPD.

Police found a “male suffering from a gunshot wound. He was immediately taken to a hospital,” KPD spokeswoman Ofelia Miramontez said.

The victim was in emergency surgery as of 5 p.m. Friday, she said.

When asked, police did not confirm if the shooter is on the loose.

School officials at 2 p.m. said Shoemaker High School was on “external lockdown, which means we keep the kids inside but inside school operates as normal,” school officials said in an email.

The lockdown was lifted about 2:35 p.m. when police gave the all clear.

Nearby Iduma Elementary School was also briefly put on external lockdown during the incident, officials said.
