BELTON — A Killeen man is facing a felony assault charge in connection with the March 5 shooting of another man.
George Albert Price Jr., 23, was indicted by a Bell County grand jury Wednesday on a third-degree felony charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
According to an arrest affidavit, Killeen police were investigating a report of gunshots when they found a man sitting in a pool of blood in the 500 block of Wyoming Street. The man was shot in the leg.
The injured man said he was standing outside his apartment when he was approached by three men. Words were exchanged, and one of the men pulled out a gun and started shooting at him. The man said he reached into his apartment, grabbed his own gun, and returned fire.
The man identified Price as the person who shot him. Police picked up Price later that day at an apartment on Gilmer Street. Price had multiple bullet wounds to his ear, upper arm and leg.
