Killeen Police Officer and Suspect Injured During Foot Chase

A Killeen police officer and a suspect he was chasing both ended up in the hospital Wednesday night.

Crystal Rosado with our news partner, KWTX, reported that the officer stopped the suspect at the intersection of Virginia Street and Adams Avenue around 7:30 PM. The officer asked the suspect to exit his vehicle and began escorting him to the rear of the car when the suspect ran.

After a foot chase, the officer and the suspect got into a struggle, during which they butted heads. Both were taken to a local hospital. The officer was released, but the suspect remained hospitalized Thursday morning.

Neither man’s name has been released.
