Police locate 17-year-old person of interest in Killeen murder

KILLEEN, TX (KXXV) -

The 17-year-old person of interest in a robbery has been located and arrested, according to Killeen Police. 

Detectives say Shamar Lamar Lewis, also known as “Savage”, was at the parking lot of the Morgan Manor Apartments when three or four individuals attacked and killed the victim March 7.

Police named Lewis as person of interest connected to the death of a man who was robbed and beaten to death at a local apartment complex.

Just after 8 p.m. that night, officers responded to the 1500 block of Bundrant Drive after receiving a 911 call in reference to a robbery.

When officers got to the scene, they found the victim lying on the ground, unconscious, and not breathing.

He was taken to Seton Medical Center where he was pronounced dead just after 10 p.m.

Later, authorities revealed that the victim was in the parking lot of the apartment complex when he was approached by a group of individuals and brutally attacked.

Lewis was wanted for another felony warrant, and officer urge the public not to attempt to apprehend this wanted person because he’s considered armed and dangerous.

Lewis was located at 2:22 p.m. and arrested on the warrant that was out for his arrest. He is currently in the Killeen City Jail awaiting arraignment.
