The Killeen Police Department has identified one of the men involved a shooting incident leading to a partial evacuation of a local neighborhood last Sunday night.

Officers were dispatched to the 1200 block of Cavalry Drive last Monday in reference a 911 call about an armed subject.

While officers made their way to the scene, numerous 911 calls were received about several men armed with “laser guns”.

When officers arrived, one man discharged a weapon toward the officers. The officers then returned fire.

Through the investigation, the man was identified as 44-year-old Kelvin Javar Jones.

Jones was located by officers in the backyard of a residence on Loyal Lane shortly after the incident. Once located, he was taken into custody and transported to the Killeen City Jail.

This case was reviewed by the Bell County District Attorney’s Office on Tuesday, and a complaint was returned charging Jones with Aggravated Assault on a Public Servant.

Jones was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke, and he set his bond at $500,000.

The two additional men were taken into custody for unrelated charges, and are not part of this investigation.
