Two Temple Murder Suspects Named – Third, A Juvenile, Not Named
Police have released the names of two adult suspects in Monday's fatal shooting on Betsy Ross Dr, but are withholding the name of a 16-year-old juvenile suspect.
Cash Le'Anthony Hilliard, 17, and Marqus Kejuaan Brown, 18, were in the Bell County Jail Tuesday. Records indicated the status of their shared charges were "UNKNOWN" as of 11:30 AM, and a motion to revoke probation was listed under Brown's name. Brown was held in lieu of $5,000 bond, while no bond was listed for Cash.
Police say a third suspect who is 16 was being held in the Killeen's Juvenile Detention Center. Because of his age, they will not release his name or booking information.
Formal charges are expected after a review of evidence by the Bell County District Attorney's Office.
Temple police responded to a report of shots fired in the area of Betsy Ross Drive and Saulsbury at 2:15 PM Monday. They found an injured man and attempted CPR, but the victim's wounds proved fatal. Officers blocked access to the street and a stretch of Saulsbury Drive as they searched the area for suspects, even calling in the Texas Rangers and a DPS helicopter to assist in the search. Meanwhile, nearby schools were placed on lockdown.
