KILLEEN, Texas (KWTX) A Killeen teenager who, according to an arrest affidavit, called 911 to report he’d been shot, but who had actually stabbed himself in the leg before producing a pistol and threatening to kill a female roommate and then himself, was indicted Wednesday for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Kylor Ryan Kirk, 19, remained in the Bell County Jail Wednesday charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

He’s also held on a probation revocation motion.

His bonds total $200,000.

Officers who responded to the 911 call just after 3:15 a.m. on Feb. 26 found Kirk hiding next to an air conditioning unit outside of a residence in the 500 block of Draco Drive, the affidavit says.

“He actually had stabbed himself in the leg and was treated for this wound and refused to be transported to the hospital,” the affidavit says.

Officers talked to the woman Kirk had threatened, the affidavit says, and she told them she was “packing her things to leave when (Kirk) threatened to kill himself if she left.”

Kirk stood and blocked the bedroom door and then fell to the floor after stabbing himself in the leg, the affidavit says.

But as the woman tried to leave the room, the affidavit says, he grabbed her, produced a pistol “and pointed it at her threatening to kill them both.”

A male roommate entered the room and distracted Kirk long enough for the woman to flee, the affidavit says.

Kirk followed her out of the house, the affidavit says.

Officers recovered a Daisy Powerline air gun at the scene, which, according to the affidavit, “is capable of causing serious bodily injury or death.”

Kirk later admitted he owned a “black BB gun” and said “he did not remember whether he pointed it at people because he was too intoxicated,” the affidavit says.
