Killeen police are investigating after two people were shot in the city Saturday afternoon.

Our partners at News 10 report that KPD officers were dispatched to a call about a shooting in the 700 block of Houston Street around 3:24 PM. When they arrived, they found two people shot: a child and an adult.

The child was transported to McLane Children’s Hospital in Temple. The adult was taken to the Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center.

Police were investigating the scene Saturday evening, and despite having no suspect in custody, said there was further threat to the area.

We'll bring you more information as it becomes available.


I can't speculate as to the details of the shooting or the motive, but I know the holidays can be a tough time of year for some of us, whether it be due to stress or triggers to mental illnesses with which many of us struggle.
