Fort Hood Soldier Arrested After Killeen Woman Shoots Would-Be Burglar
Fort Hood soldier Jamar Mcnair Jones, 18, was in the Bell County Jail charged with burglary of a habitation with the intent to commit theft Monday after a Killeen woman shot a man who tried to force his way into her home.
The woman called 911 early Friday morning after the would-be burglar fled.
She told officers she was awakened by the doorbell around 4 a.m. Friday.
The front door of the woman’s home had a viewer, but she told officers she was unable to see who was ringing the bell so she opened the door slightly.
When she did, the man attempted to force his way in.
That’s when she fired.
While officers were interviewing the woman, other officers at Metroplex Hospital advised them that a man matching the description of the would-be burglar had just arrived at the emergency room for treatment of a gunshot wound.
The man was transferred to Scott & White Hospital where he underwent surgery to remove the bullet, police said.
Jones was arrested after he was released from Scott & White Monday evening, police said.
His bond was set at $500,000.
