A motorcycle chase involving Killeen police ended outside a north Killeen home Wednesday morning after a brief standoff.

A Killeen police officer attempted to conduct a traffic stop of a man on a motorcycle about 10 a.m. at the intersection of East Veterans Memorial Boulevard and W.S. Young Drive.

Police said the rider fled, evaded officers and eventually ended up at a home in the 2900 block of Boyd Avenue. He was eventually taken into custody without incident.

Police did not immediately release his name.

A gun was recovered at the scene, according to Killeen police spokeswoman Ofelia Miramontez. Police believe the motorcycle was stolen.

The chase brought on a crowd of police. At 11:15 a.m., there were still at least seven Killeen police cruisers on hand, and two more officers were on motorcycles.

An officer with the Texas Department of Public Safety assisted on the call, but did not participate in the chase, according to Sgt. Jonathan Rinehart.
