BELTON — A Bell County grand jury indicted a 20-year-old Killeen man Wednesday after he allegedly shot a man in the head during an attempted robbery in August. Kevin Donnell Williams Jr. was indicted on a charge of aggravated robbery with bodily injury, a first-degree felony.
The incident occurred Aug. 6 in the 3800 block of Hitchrock Drive.
As the victim and a woman walked down the street, the suspect — described as man wearing a red-hooded sweatshirt and a bandana over his face — approached while riding a bicycle, according to the arrest affidavit.
The suspect demanded they empty their pockets of all valuables. When the man replied that he had nothing, the suspect shot him in the head and fled the scene, the affidavit stated. When Killeen police arrived, they found a man lying in the street in a pool of blood. Police viewed surveillance footage showing a man riding a bike and wearing similar clothes go into a home near the time of the shooting.
Police later obtained a warrant and searched the home Aug. 27.
In one of the bedrooms, police found a red-hooded sweatshirt, a bandana and a revolver. One of the occupants of the home told investigators Williams told him he shot someone on the night of the incident. The occupant also said he witnessed Williams leave the residence wearing a bandana placed over the lower portion of his face, a red-hooded sweatshirt and ride off on a bicycle, the affidavit stated.
Williams is in Bell County Jail, and his bond is set at $100,000.
He was arrested in March for burglary of a building, and in February 2012 for possession of marijuana, less than 2 ounces, in a drug-free zone.
Williams also was named in a separate affidavit as one of the three men who allegedly robbed a pizza delivery driver at gunpoint Aug. 18.
