The man who held Killeen police and SWAT officers at bay during a five-hour standoff Tuesday now is in Bell County Jail.
Shawn Michael Walker, 29, of Killeen, was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Garland Potvin Wednesday morning. Potvin set no bond for Walker, according to court records. Walker was taken into custody Tuesday afternoon following a prolonged standoff, which began about 1 p.m. when Killeen police and another law enforcement agency attempted to serve multiple warrants.
Walker refused to leave the home, and Killeen police called in their tactical response unit at 2:30 p.m. The police used chemical munitions to force him to surrender after negotiations failed. Walker was taken into custody at 5:44 p.m. According to documents from Potvin’s office, Walker was wanted on one warrant out of Henderson County for a probation violation for possession of a firearm by a felon. He also had a warrant in Bell County for possession of a controlled substance.
Potvin also arraigned the following individuals on unrelated charges Wednesday:
- Treavor Lovell Ford, 22, and Cameron Lee Estes, 19, on a charge of possession of a controlled substance, more than 1 gram, but less than 4 grams. Both Ford’s and Estes’ bail was set at $25,000.
- Christian Eugene Reddick, 29, and Clint Demetri Jones, 27, on a charge of unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon. Both men’s bail was set at $50,000.
