Two people were hospitalized Thursday night after three men broke into their apartment.
Killeen Police were called to the 4400 block of Alan Kent Drive at 9:13 p.m. to a shots fired report. When officers arrived, they were told three masked men forced their way into the apartment; one female was shot and another was pistol whipped. The two victims showed up at a local hospital where they are currently being treated for what appears to be non life threatening wounds.
Authorities describe the robbers as the three black males wearing bandanas on their faces and at least one is armed. At this time, all suspects are considered armed and dangerous!
