Three People Found Shot, 10-Year-Old Injured In Killeen, Texas
In the past two weeks, there have been unnecessary crimes involving children here in Killeen and, personally, I think it's disturbing.
Unfortunately, I have to start at the tragedy that occurred a week ago when 2 young children ages 6 and 11 were killed during a domestic dispute at a home to which the police had been called 19 times since 2017.
Fast forward to a week later, where an ongoing investigation is underway due to a weekend shooting that left three people wounded in a car left in North Killeen.
According to Killeen Police Department Spokesperson Ophelia Martinez, officers were dispatched to the intersection of College Street and Dunn Avenue at 5:18 PM Saturday, March 19 in response to a 9-1-1 call about a shooting.
Investigators say three people were traveling west in a green Ford Mustang near Dunn Ave and 8th Street when shots were fired. The car continued to travel west on Dunn before the driver lost control on College Street and hit a parked car.
According to police, a 10-year-old child was standing between the car that was struck and a parked SUV, and was injured by the impact of the crash.
Were The Injuries To The Victims Severe?
According to KWTX, the 10-year-old was airlifted to McLane Children’s Medical Center in stable condition.
The three people shot were transported to Baylor Scott and White in Temple, Texas with non-life-threatening injuries.
No other update has been given.
