Killeen Police Shooting: 2 Officers Shot, 2 Arrested

By: Pam Wright - May 10, 2014

A Killeen police shooting in Texas Friday has left two police officers injured, one of them in critical condition.

A 49-year-old man and a 50-year-old woman were arrested after the incident for allegedly shooting the officers during the execution of a search warrant.

Marvin Louis Guy, 49, of Killeen, was charged with three counts of attempted capital murder and was being held in the Bell County Jail Saturday in lieu of bonds totaling $3 million.

According to Killeen police spokeswoman Carroll Smith, a SWAT team and officers from the Bell County Organized Crime Task Force surrounded an apartment on the 1100 block of Circle M Drive in Killeen while authorities served a search warrant, when someone inside the residence opened fire.

Four officers were hit by bullets, but two were hit on their bullet proof vests and avoided injury. The other two were seriously injured and transported to Scott & White Hospital in Temple, with one in critical condition.

The two injured officers’ names have not yet been made public, but one of the two is reportedly an 18-year veteran and was initially listed in serious condition until his condition deteriorated and the hospital changed his status to critical. The other is a nine-year veteran and is listed in good condition.

“The tragic events that unfolded have left the members of the Killeen Police Department and their families seeking answers to a senseless, destructive act,” said Police Chief Dennis Baldwin.

“The families of the injured officers are aware of the outpouring of love, prayers, and support from the Central Texas Community. On behalf of the Killeen Police Department and the families of the injured officers, I would like to express our appreciation.”

A local resident identifying herself as M. Simpson told reporters, “I haven’t had conversations with them, but I’ve talked to them just saying ‘hey.’ My husband had a birthday party and everybody came, and he was one of them. He seemed weird, but I didn’t think he was that stirred to do all that.”

    Oh no, the state won this one. If the citizens had more powerful arms it might have been different. They should have had a stronger militia to back them up.

    • jack

      Or less liberals flapping their gums.

      • phil

        It’s okay folks. The firearms used by the suspects were licensed and registered. So no harm was done!

        • jack

          Are you sure phil? Maybe they ether stole them or bought them from eric holder down south of the border where he sells them to the drug lords.

          • Joe Bialobreski

            Jack you are right, you have to stay on your toes. When I sell arms to known felons and somehow the cops can get enough information to ask me questions regarding the use of one of these guns in a crime (to spite NRA efforts to make that near impossible) I must remember to say the firearm was stolen. Not only does this get me off the hook but it goes into the stats as a stolen gun used in a crime. This keeps my business going.

        • jack

          If you libs are so afraid of guns, you could always hide under your beds or behind your mothers apron strings all day.

          • Joe Bialobreski

            Good to know that we have fine Americans who don’t do so like these two who took on the illegal representitives of the state, right Jack?

          • jack

            What are you talking about?

          • Joe Bialobreski

            This guy and gal stood up to the illegal usurper tyrannical state, right?

          • jack

            Too bad the police didn’t take them out. We still have laws in this country if you libs haven’t noticed. I’m not wasting any more time with you.

          • Joe Bialobreski

            Not surprising since I blew you out of the water on every “point” you tried to make.

  • Ben Gagliardo

    no knock warrant?

  • crc01

    Prayers for the officers, their families & agency.

  • James A. Burgin

    Apparently, all it takes to stop a good guy with a gun serving a warrant is a bad guy with a gun. But then Wayne LaPierre doesn’t want people to think about it in this way.

    • jack

      Maybe if you libs would look at your selves murdering 3500. babies every day you would quit worrying about Wayne LaPierre so much and straighten out your own screwed up lives.

      • Joe Bialobreski

        Jack (off), not a liberal here but if you know of someone killing babies in this country it is your duty to report it. Infanticide is illegal in all 50 states and DC with a few exceptions for unborn children in a few situations involving life and death of the mother and child.

        • jack

          Not a lib huh Joe? You sure act like one. Also, you ever hear of planned parenthood? !.5 million murders every year. Now go change your ear rings.

          • Joe Bialobreski

            Oh I see, you are talking about abortion, that’s legal and you could understand why if you had a decent education. If there is a community college nearby most will offer a biology and/or, better yet, a human development course. It is possible that you can monitor the course if you are willing to leave out your foolish questions.

  • Fist Of God

    Thank Jesus for our God-given second amendment right to defend ourselves against intruders like cops.

    • Ben Gagliardo

      if a cop doesn’t announce himself before entering they take a chance of being shot an a intruder………no knock warrants are a bad idea

      • jack

        They can get shot if they do announce themselves. It’s a risk either way.

        • Joe Bialobreski

          Did they announce themselves to Bundy? LIke these two, our frontline of defense against the usurper gummint tyranny.

  • Ben Gagliardo

    if a cop doesn’t announce himself before entering they take a chance of being shot as a intruder………no knock warrants are a bad idea

    • Ben Gagliardo

      not from law abiding folk

      • Joe Bialobreski

        Combining these two is hard to do. Could you please clarify without making it obvious that we need greater regulation of firearms.

  • David Strickland

    What does Marvin Louis Guy look like I bet I can guess.

    • Sana

      Look up the case and educate yourself. I know you are naturally stupid but you can improve yourself.

  • jack

    Most important thing is that we have our first black president. Right libs?

    • Joe Bialobreski

      Jack, you didn’t have to tell us you were racist, most of us already knew.

      • jack

        I see you’re another lib that knows all about me. You idiots don’t have a clue. People voted black, not for the man. TWICE. And here we are today, in the worst shape ever. I vote for the man. I’d vote for Jesse Jackson if I thought he’d do a good job. I don’t care about color, just the man. Martin Luther talked about the content of a man’s character. Well this idiot doesn’t have any character, just BS and hot air. Now go pull your lib BS on somebody else.

        • Joe Bialobreski

          See, I do know you, as do the liberals. You are so smart that you understand people’s motivations with absolutely no evidence. Let’s try doing some comparrisons. I did not vote for your President either time. In my life I have voted for blacks and whites for President and other offices. I have also voted for males and females. Some of those who voted for President, have voted in the past for only white males and now for a black male. Now tell the truth, you have only voted for white men for President. Now tell the truth, you have only voted for white males for any office and you have definitely never voted for a black of either gender. Does this tell us something, no but it makes one suspicious that you belong to the most prejudiced group of voters. Could you please tell us how it is that you understand character and how you define lack of any in a President? Can you tell us which of the last 5 or 6 Presidents were of good character, how about of the last 5 or 6 losers of the Presidential election. In other words jack, you have no character, and no content in your babbles. You are an empty little bigot.

          • jack

            My final reply to you liberal, I don’t care what you do or think. What I do is none of your busy body business. Now go show somebody else what a wonderful intelligent liberal person you are.

          • Joe Bialobreski

            Jack, the empty little bigot, if you wish your baseless oppinions to remain your business, don’t post them on forums where they are expressed to thousands of people, idiot.

          • jack

            If you idiots didn’t have the words bigot, hate, and racist to throw around, you wouldn’t have a vocabulary at all to make yourselves look so stupid with. Bye

          • Joe Bialobreski

            Jack, just to show what a fibbing sack you are, I thought you said on your last post that it was your last post. If you have trouble with those words just leave them out, my posts directed to you will still demonstrate that you are a tiny little man with a tiny little brain.

    • Sana

      Dumb comment from a simpleton

      • jack

        Yes, Joe is a simpleton. But then all liberals are.

  • Sana

    So whats the difference between this case and the Henry goedrich magee case? Both were No knock warrant police climbing through someones window in the middle of the night. One was charged the other wasn’t. Magee was white Guy is black. Why isn’t the law applied equally?
