A man was critically injured in a shooting Thursday afternoon, after he got into an argument with another man at the Casa Arroyo Apartments located in the 300 block of Wolf Street in Killeen, according to KPD Spokesperson Ofelia Miramontez.
Miramontez said the verbal dispute turned into a shooting just before 12:30 p.m., at which point officers were dispatched to the scene. Detectives were not immediately certain whether or not the two men lived in the complex or what their relationship to each other was.
The suspect fled the area in a gray or silver Chrysler 300 or similar style vehicle.
The shooting victim was airlifted to Baylor Scott and White Hospital in Temple.
Detectives and patrol officers roped off the apartment complex with crime scene tape, according to Channel 6 News Reporter Emani Payne who was on scene. Investigators planned to continue gathering evidence and interviewing witnesses until at least late Thursday afternoon, police said.
Killeen Police have asked for the public's help identifying the suspect, who Miramontez described only as a black male. He described as a thin build black male, in his 30's, 5'11" to 6 ft tall, with short hair and some facial hair.
