LACY LAKEVIEW (November 20, 2012)—A man who already was being held in the McLennan County Jail in connection with the shooting of a Lacy Lakeview police officer now faces more charges.

Keith McAdams, 21, now faces bonds totaling $154,000 for the initial charges of aggravated assault on a peace officer and new charges including deadly conduct and possession of a controlled substance.

McAdams also is held on a motion to adjudicate guilt on an evading arrest charge without bond.

McAdams is charged with shooting Lacy Lakeview police Officer Roy Wood at a residence in Lacy Lakeview on Nov. 8.

Wood was taken to Hillcrest Hospital where he was treated for the gunshot wound and released later that night.

Lacy Lakeview police were sent to check on a report of a suicidal and possibly armed person at a house in the 100 block of Bobcat Drive just north of the Texas State Technical College campus.

A second person who was taken into custody after the shooting was later released.

Wood was one of four officers who were dispatched at around 5:10 p.m. Thursday to the home at 104 Bobcat Dr.

As the officers attempted to make contact with the residents, someone fired from inside the house, authorities said.
As the officers scrambled to take cover, Wood was struck in the back of the upper arm and the bullet exited through his shoulder, authorities said.

Dozens of officers from area agencies responded to the scene and surrounded the house where the officer was shot.

At one point as many as 45 officers were at the scene of the shooting.

Some nearby homes were evacuated, officials said.

McAdams and the second person in the house were arrested about 30 minutes after the shots were fired, authorities said.
