December 10, 2018

At about 9:55 a.m. this morning four people ran from a stolen pickup truck as a Belton police officer was preparing to initiate a traffic stop in 1300 block of Fairway Drive. 

One person was apprehended right away. Another was located a short distance away suffering from a gunshot wound to his leg. The man was injured when a gun he was carrying went off while he was fleeing. 

The man was transported to Scott & White Hospital for treatment. 

Two others who were in the car were not immediately located. 

As a precaution, Miller Heights Elementary, which is in the area, was placed on a soft lockdown for about an hour. There was no indication that the men were a threat to the neighborhood.
