Killeen police have made an arrest of a suspect in the killing of a 2-year-old child Saturday in the 4600 block of Golden Gate Drive.
Officials said a complaint was issued Sunday charging in 26-year-old Shayla Cyriece Dearinge with Murder.
Dearinge and the mother of the child were arguing when Dearinge fired a gun in the direction of the mother and toddler, striking the toddler. The child later died at McLane Children’s hospital Saturday evening.
Dearinge was arraigned on Monday and was issued a $1,000,000 bond on the charge of Murder.
She will be transported to the Bell County Jail later in the day.
