KILLEEN, Texas (KWTX) - Adrianna Jean Veal, 28, who was arrested after a shooting and hammer attack on May 12 that sent an unidentified man to Scott & White Medical Center in serious condition, was named in indictments Wednesday charging burglary of a habitation with intent to commit another felony and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
