Two arrested in Bell County home invasion turned shootout

BELL COUNTY, TX (KXXV) -

Police have taken 2 Killeen men into custody who are suspected in two incidents in Bell County. The incidents took place on FM 2484, south of Killeen, in Bell County.

According to police, 33-year-old Kyle Wright and 25-year-old Eric Ebers were involved in a home invasion and a burglary in Bell County Tuesday evening.

Police say that in the home invasion case, one of the suspects knocked on the door of 20684 FM 2484 around 5 p.m. and the resident answered. The suspect was holding a gun and forced his way into the home and demanded money.

Another resident drove up at the house and was confronted by another armed man in the driveway. The two men outside the house exchanged gunfire. After the shots were fired, both of the suspects fled in a dark colored vehicle. No one was injured.

Around 3 hours later, police were called out for a burglary in progress at 16400 FM 2484. Police say the homeowner was returning home when he saw 2 men in his truck parked in the front yard. The 2 suspects fled the scene with guns and other items taken from the house.

DPS troopers helped deputies secure the area and conducted a search for the suspects with help from a DPS helicopter.

Deputies located Kyle Wright around midnight and took him into custody with no incident. Most of the stolen items were found at the scene of the arrest as well as the vehicle used in the home invasion.

The police picked up Eric Ebers Wednesday afternoon after receiving a call about a suspicious person on a bicycle on FM 2484 near Gravel Crossing Rd that matched the description of the 2nd suspect from the Bell County incidents.

Ebers was found in a building at 15401 FM 2484 and taken into custody at 1:59 p.m. Wednesday without incident.

Investigators will continue their investigation and Ebers and Wright will stay in the Bell County Jail pending case screening by the Bell County District Attorney's Office.
