An Oklahoma man is facing charges following a motel shooting incident in Killeen on Friday.
Blaine Mayo Hines, 31, of Sallislaw, Oklahoma, has been charged with deadly conduct-discharge of a firearm, habitation, building or vehicle.
On Friday Killeen Police Department officers were dispatched to a local hotel in response to shots fired, according to a criminal complaint affidavit. At the scene, the front desk clerk told the officers that the occupants of room 117 had been causing a disturbance and that she had heard gunshots.
When officers approached the room, they observed bullet holes in the walls and doors, along with wooden debris on the floor. The officers knocked and then detained two males inside the room, including Hines, as well as located a firearm near the door. The officers spoke with the two males inside the room and other hotel guests, and Hines admitted firing five rounds from his firearm, which according to the affidavit entered not only the walls and doors of his room but of those of other guests.
The other male at the scene told officers he and Hines had been using methamphetamine earlier that day.
Hines’ bond has been set at $100,000.
In an unrelated case on Oct. 2, Stephon Andrade Barrett, 25, is facing a charge of aggravated assault-bodily injury with a deadly weapon. KPD officers were dispatched to a residence regarding a domestic assault with weapons, according to an affidavit.
Officers met with a female victim who was crying and grasping for breath, who then claimed the suspect, Barrett, had gotten into an argument over finances which turned physical. The suspect then took her phone from her, pushed her on the bed and began to strike her. The victim then was able to push Barrett off her but realized then that he had a knife. The victim was able to ward off attempts to stab her, and Barrett admitted there had been a physical altercation but denied he ever had a knife.
Officers then located a knife matching the description given by the victim, in the place she said it would be.
Barrett’s bond is set at $100,000.
