Killeen police officers responded to a report of a man with a gun in the 3400 block of Stan Schlueter Loop on Saturday, at 9:46 p.m. The caller told police the man was wearing all black and was possibly armed with a shotgun.

An officer arrived in the area and located a silver Honda Accord with no lights, stopped in the roadway in the 4600 block of Lonesome Dove Dr. The officer saw a male in the driver’s seat slumped over and suffering from a gunshot wound and the back driver’s side window shattered.

While the officers were searching the area for the male who was seen by witnesses with a gun, they located a suspicious male in the 3200 block of Gus Dr. After further investigation, the male was taken into custody and transported to the Killeen City Jail.

The victim, a 35-year-old Killeen resident, succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead by medical staff at 10:36pm.
