Killeen Police Need Help Finding a Person of Interest in a Shooting Case
Detectives with the Killeen Police Department are searching for a man believed to be involved in a fight that escalated into gunfire earlier this year, and they're hoping someone out here in the public can help.
The incident happened back on May 28, 2021 in the parking lot of a hotel in the 2600 block of East Elms Road.
Around 11:07 PM that night, police responded to reports of a disturbance. Witnesses said the disturbance involved two groups of people, and that it ended when a man pulled a handgun and shot someone.
The man then fled the scene in a vehicle with three other people. Police have reason to believe the car was a dark colored Nissan.
The suspect was described as a Black man with a beard wearing a white t-shirt, blue jeans, and a baseball cap.
Police released the surveillance stills above (tap here to view them if they don't appear properly above) in hopes that someone out there will recognize the people involved or remember something about that night that could be helpful.
If you think you can help out, detectives ask that you contact Bell County Crime Stoppers at (254)526-TIPS (8477), bellcountycrimestoppers.com, or the free P3Tips app.
You do not have to give Crime Stoppers your name, and if your information leads to an arrest you could net a cash reward of up to $1,000.
There's no excuse for people acting this way and endangering other people in our community, so I hope someone out there has some information that could help bring the gunman to justice.
