Relatives remember Killeen homicide victim amid string of weekend shootings
Relatives of one of the three homicide victims involved in a string of shootings earlier this week are remembering her as a much loved sister, aunt, daughter and girlfriend.

According to the family of 19-year-old Alondra Santiago, she was one of the victims to lose her life amid several shootings that took place in Killeen during and soon after the Labor Day weekend. She was a 2020 graduate of Killeen High School.

On Tuesday evening, police responded to the 1800 block of Stardust Street in North Killeen at 11:30 p.m., where they confirmed a 19-year-old female had been fatally shot, according to authorities.

 

Santiago’s death, a result of a drive-by shooting, marks the 12th homicide of the year in Killeen.

Her sister, Lesley Rodriguez, posted on Facebook Wednesday remembering her as many things, including a loving aunt, sister, daughter and friend to many. Rodriguez then made a desperate plea to end gun violence, calling on the community to make a stand.

“This has got to stop.. this gun violence in our town is too much.. too close to home... we have to come together as a community and do something,” Rodriguez said Wednesday.

No arrests have been announced in the case, and the family is still in shock and looking for answers, Rodriguez said. She thanked Killeen police for working on the case, and dealing compassionately with the family.

“There were two (KPD officers) that kept my parents calm” during the tragic incident, Rodriguez said.

The department is asking anyone who may have seen anything, has any videos or any information about this shooting, to contact the Bell County Crime Stoppers at 254-526-TIPS (8477) or go online at www.bellcountycrimestoppers.com.
