Officers closed streets in the area of West Young Avenue and North College Street at around 10:30 a.m. Tuesday after earlier setting up surveillance on a residence in the 1100 block of North College in response to a tip from the Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force.

Late Tuesday morning they arrested Donshay Meundre Sanders, 21, who's listed on the Bell County Jail log as Meundre Donshay Sanders, and Dystiny Denice Davis, 25, on warrants charging capital murder, armed robbery and three counts of attempted murder.

“Although both Sanders and Davis were reported to have very violent criminal histories, the Tactical Response Unit was able to locate, identify and arrest both subjects without major incident,” police Cmdr. Eric Morsbach said in a press release.

Killeen officers recovered four handguns, including one that may have been used in the deadly shooting, as well as an unspecified quantity of narcotics.

Officers arrested two other men and another woman on unrelated charges, police said.
