WACO, TX — A Louisiana fugitive is being held in the McLennan County Jail on a $1.25 million bond after an officer-involved shooting in Waco.

The McLennan County Sheriff's Office FAST unit was trying to arrest Hill in the 1000 block of Lake Air Drive just after 1 a.m. on December 5.

When deputies located Hill, they turned on their police strobe lights to indicate they were police officers. Hill then pulled a .25 handgun and fired several shots at the deputies.

The deputies fired back, hitting Hill multiple times.

He was taken to Baylor Scott & White Hillcrest in Waco with non life-threatening injuries.

No officers were hurt.

Hill was found to be in possession of 80.7 grams of methamphetamine, 20.9 of which was packaged for sale. He was also in possession of scales and baggies consistent with selling the illicit substance.

Hill then told a Texas Ranger that he sells methamphetamine and marijuana.

Hill was also found in possession of 2.9 grams of cocaine, three handguns and ammunition.

Hill has been charged with three counts of aggravated assault on a peace officer, one count of manufacture/ delivery of a controlled substance, one count of possession of a controlled substance and one count of unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon.

He is being held on a $1.25 million local bond.
