CALVERT — A man wanted by Killeen police who they say shot a woman in a robbery attempt was arrested nearly 80 miles away from Killeen on Wednesday.
Nicholas Dewayne Boyd, wanted on aggravated robbery charges, was arrested by Calvert police, the Robertson County Sheriff’s Office and state troopers.
Calvert police Chief Mike Hoyt received notice that Boyd was staying at a house in Calvert that belonged to his girlfriend’s mother from a Crimestoppers tip, as well as an informant.
After contacting the sheriff and state troopers, they surrounded Boyd and took him into custody without incident.
“He didn’t have a chance,” Hoyt said.
Boyd answered the door, and upon opening it, made eye contact with Hoyt. He then attempted to shut it and run, but Hoyt and his team kicked the door open and grabbed Boyd before he got the chance to go anywhere.
On Aug. 14, police responded to a shooting at the Amco Hotel at 404 S. Fort Hood St. at 12:46 a.m. Nicholas Dewayne Boyd, otherwise known as “No Good,” fled the hotel after he shot a female in the stomach during a robbery attempt. Officers searched the area, but were unable to locate him immediately after he fled.
Boyd was transported to the Robertson County Jail.
