Belton Police Release more Information about Shootings at 2410 Spur

IMG_0376cip.png

Three officers on the scene of a shooting on Wednesday night in Belton have been placed on administrative leave by the Belton Police Department. The move is a standard law enforcement practice for shootings involving an officer, and Belton Police Chief Gene Ellis said he expects all of the officers to eventually be cleared to return to duty.

At about 9:06 p.m. on Wednesday, Belton police were dispatched to a shooting in the 2800 block of 2410 Spur, in which the shooter was reported still on the scene. Three officers arrived at the location within four minutes and encountered a man with a gun, who refused repeated commands by officers to drop the weapon.

The man was shot multiple times after he pointed a small caliber handgun he was holding in the direction of officers. Two of the three officers fired shots.

Both of the injured men were transported from the scene to Scott & White Hospital. The first shooting victim was reported in critical condition on Thursday, while the suspect was alert and in stable condition.

The men knew each other and were involved in a disturbance together prior to the first shooting, Chief Ellis said.

None of the officers who responded to the call were injured. They have two, 18, and 19 years experience with the Belton Police Department, respectively.

The officers received immediate peer support on Wednesday night and Thursday. Chief Ellis said the officers would also receive professional support before returning to duty.

The Bell County District Attorney's office, Bell County Sheriff's office, and the Texas Rangers are assisting in the investigation.

No charges have been filed yet, and the names of the men who were shot and the officers have not been released.

It is standard practice for Texas Rangers to investigate shootings that involve officers.
