Killeen police are investigating the shooting and murder of a man at an apartment complex this afternoon.

Police received a report "in reference to a male with an apparent stab wound" around 1:40 p.m. on Monday at the Archstone Apartments, located at the 600 block of West Hallmark Avenue. Officers located a man suffering from a gunshot wound.

The victim has since been identified as 18-year-old Dominic Nicholson.

Investigation revealed that Nichols and the suspect were in the parking lot when the suspect fired shots, police said. Nicholson was able to get away to seek aid.

The man was immediately transported to the Carl R. Darnall Medical Center after officers arrived.

"Nicholson succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased by Justice of the Peace Gregory Johnson at 4:03 p.m," said police in a release. "He ordered an autopsy to be performed at the Southwestern Institute of Forensic Sciences in Dallas."

Police believe this was an isolated incident and are continuing to investigate the now seventeenth murder in the City of Killeen.
