UPDATE: There have been false reports that the shooting occurred at Twice as Funny Comedy Lounge in Killeen. As indicated in the original article, the shooting happened after the show. The clarify, authorities say it took place near the Naked City club on South Fort Hood Street.


 

It was a crazy violent weekend in Central Texas, and specifically in Killeen. Ultimately, four people were killed and others were injured.I was on TikTok this weekend and saw the video below pop up on my feed. It's footage from the scene of a shooting that occurred after the Stunna 4 Vegas concert in Killeen. A lot of questions popped in my head as I watched the video, including:

Number one, why are you recording the shooting and not running for cover?

Secondly, and most importantly, why are people shooting?

A lot of questions have gone unanswered after this past weekend in Killeen, Harker Heights, and Belton, which, sadly, was a violent one.

As we reported Sunday morning, a clerk at the Valero on Fort Hood and Elms was shot and killed. Before that, 3 others were killed and others were injured in shootings that happened in Belton, Harker Heights, and Killeen starting Friday and going into Sunday.

Sunday morning's shooting of the Valero employee was the ninth homicide in Killeen this year.

Central Texas is, for the most part, a great place to live, but these outbreaks of violence have given the area, Killeen in particular, a bad reputation and even spilled into places like Austin (which, to be fair, has issues of its own).

We as a community can and should do better than this.

Texas' Top 15 Pro Athletes from the Past 25 Years in No Particular Order

These are, in my opinion, the Top 15 Professional athletes from the past 25 years.

Of course, we'll start with the Dallas Cowboys (of course we will) and go from there.

The NFL's most prized franchise won 3 World Championships in the 1990s in 1992, 1993, and 1995.

Those teams saw numerous Hall Of Fame coaches and players from Jimmy Johnson, Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, and Michael Irvin. 

You can't forget about the dynasty the San Antonio Spurs had that started in the late 90s and came into the 200s as an NBA Powerhouse winning 5 NBA Championships led by players such as David Robinson, Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobli, Tony Parker, and in their later years Kawhi Leonard.

What about that 2011 Dallas Mavericks team that gave Dallas their first-ever NBA Championship under the leadership of Dirk Nowitski, Jason Kidd, Jason Terry and company?

We definitely can't deny new superstar Luka Doncic and the Mavericks of today inching closer and closer to becoming a dominant West Coast Team.

I would be foolish not to mention those Houston Rockets teams that repeated as NBA Champions in the mid-90s, (I did say past 25 years right?) and the James Harden led team, who along with Chris Paul boosted the Rockets to the playoffs year after year ultimately leading them to the Western Conference Finals.

Here are my top 15..
