Jared Michael Tristan

June 2, 2020

KILLEEN, Texas Police were investigating the third deadly shooting in a Killeen residential neighborhood in less than 48 hours.

Officers who responded to a report of the shooting just before 11 p.m. on Tuesday in the 400 block of Alpine Drive found the victim, Jared Michael Tristan, 29, sitting inside a vehicle.

They performed lifesaving measures until paramedics arrived, police said.

Tristan died at the scene.

A preliminary investigation determined that Tristan arrived at the home and got into argument with a woman.

A male friend of the woman’s intervened and the dispute turned physical, police spokeswoman Ofelia Miramontez said.

“After the two males separated, the victim displayed a knife, and the suspect retrieved a handgun and fired a gunshot towards the victim,” she said.

A suspect was detained, but police did not identify him.
