KILLEEN, Texas — Three people were shot Saturday while traveling in Killeen, resulting in the vehicle's driver losing control. Police say the victim's car struck a stationary car, propelling it into — and seriously injuring — a 10-year-old bystander.

Police responded after reports of shots fired at the intersection of College Street and Dunn Avenue at 5:18 p.m. Saturday.

At the scene, police found a green Mustang with the three people inside suffering from gunshot wounds. The three victims, who haven't been identified, were taken to Baylor Scott & White. Their conditions weren't immediately known.

The Mustang was previously traveling west on Dunn before losing control after shots were fired. The Mustang then hit a parked gray car, which, in turn, hit a 10-year-old.

The child was airlifted to Baylor Scott & White McLane Children's Medical Center in Temple. The child remains in stable condition.

Police say they do not know if the shooting was targeted. No suspect or suspects has been identified.

Anyone with information should contact Killeen Police at (254) 501-8800 or Bell County Crime Stoppers at (254) 526-TIPS (8477).
