KILLEEN (November 19, 2012) --- Police were investigating Monday after a brawl involving close to fifty people armed with sticks, baseball bats and guns broke out Saturday afternoon near downtown Killeen.

Police reports indicate units were sent to 803 North College Street just after 2 p.m. Saturday in response to a report that 30 to 50 people were fighting.

Witnesses told officers that a man started a fight and threatened some people with a gun.
