U.S. Marshals on Monday afternoon arrested a Colorado man on several warrants from that state, including one charge of attempted murder, according to officials.

Jerenzo Kyles, 23, had a federal warrant on a charge of unlawful flight to avoid prosecution on an initial home invasion charge.

“We received a request from the FBI to help arrest this man out of Colorado Springs,” said Dan Phillips, supervisory deputy U.S. Marshal out of the Waco office, on Tuesday.

During an alleged home invasion, “Kyles and other suspects shot a neighbor who tried to help, but according to reports, the neighbor lived,” Phillips said.

Phillips said Kyles, formerly in the U.S. Army, had returned to Killeen because he was stationed at Fort Hood in the past and had friends and family in the area.  

Kyles was in the Bell County Jail as of Tuesday afternoon. His bond amount was listed as unavailable.

Criminals flock to KILLzone because there are so many of there mates hereabouts, and many weak predators upon which the criminals can ply their evil trade. Chef de Gendarmarie Chez KILLzone sure makes some awesome Gumbo with fresh Felon meat. Yummy..


[yawn] You talk a lot. What are you proactively doing for the community that you despise?


Thugnificent you make good points! Also it is very affordable to live here in the K-I-L-Lzone. I think our city "leaders" need to go to the surrounding cities and see how gentrification works.
