KILLEEN (November 28, 2012)- Police in Killeen were looking Wednesday for a robber who pulled a gun on two other people Tuesday night and then fired twice as he fled with one of the victim's wallets.
It happened at around 7:50 p.m.Tuesday on North 2nd Street in Killeen.
The victims, a man and a woman, were walking from a truck in the driveway to the front door of their home when the robber came up to them, pulled out a gun and demanded money and other items, police said.
At one point the man pulled the trigger on the gun, but it didn’t go off, police said.
The male victim then pulled out his wallet and threw it at the robber.
In response the robber fired at the man, but missed, police said.
Then the woman threw a flowerpot at the robber and hit him on the head, police said.
The man then ran off and fired a second shot that hit the passenger window of the truck in the driveway, police said.
The man was black, and was wearing a mask-style beanie cap, a gray hooded sweatshirt and dark pants.
