A 16-year-old was arrested in Killeen Sunday after allegedly firing at an officer with what was described as a "high-powered pellet rifle".

The officer responded to a criminal mischief report in the 3700 block of Charolais Drive at 8:47 PM. Upon arriving, a resident said windows in their apartment had been shot out. While speaking with the victim, the officer heard a shot, then a projectile impact nearby.

The officer moved the victim inside for safety, then took cover and radioed for backup as another shot was fired in his direction.

According to a police report,  officers arrived at the scene and discovered that the suspect had been firing from the open window of a nearby home.

The suspect was taken into custody and placed in the Bell County Juvenile Detention Center. The suspect's name was withheld due to their age.

No injuries were reported.
