Home invasion: two in hospital, three at large

KILLEEN -- It's the sound no homeowner wants to hear, several rounds of gun shots.
"Four or five shots, like pow pow pow pow," a neighbor said.
Around 9:15 last night, neighbors on the 4400 block of Alan Kent Drive in Killeen came out of their homes and found a woman at quadplex "A" had been shot and another woman pistol whipped, but their attackers were nowhere to be found.
"The officers arrived to find that there was three black males had forced their way into an apartment. Apparently somebody was closing the door and these guys rushed in. So it wasn't like they kicked the door in, they rushed their way in," Carroll Smith with Killeen Police Department said.
At this time police believe the men fled in a car and are considered armed and dangerous.
But many questions about the break-in may go unanswered until the investigation is complete.
"A lot of these are isolated incidents. A lot of times these happen, people know who they are and there's a reason for things that are happening, we're still trying to get to that. We don't know for what reason this happened," Smith said.
While Killeen police have said this is an isolated incident, neighbors here on Alan Kent say this has happened here before and many are ready to move out.
It's the rash of crimes like this that have prompted Killeen police to start a new website to pinpoint where crimes have happened around the city.
Visit www.raidsonline.com and choose your location. From there, the site will show you where and what types of crimes have occurred.
You can also set up alerts that will let you know when something happens around an address you select.
Killeen police said they hope this website will help track down criminals, but mainly help prevent crimes from happening.
If you have any information on the whereabouts of the three men, please contact Killeen police.
