KILLEEN, Texas (KWTX) A suspect in a shooting on Nov. 16 in Killeen that sent a male victim to a local hospital and prompted a high school lockdown was in custody Monday in lieu of bonds totaling more than $500,000.

Damani Joseph Bisio, 21, turned himself in on Friday, Killeen police announced Monday.

He remains in the Bell County Jail charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and discharging a firearm in certain municipalities.

His bonds total $510,000.

Officers responded to the shooting at just after 1 p.m. Nov. 16 in the 4600 block of Windcrest Drive, where they found the victim lying in a driveway, police spokeswoman Ofelia Miramontez said earlier.

He was taken to Scott & White Medical Center in Temple.

Information about the unnamed victim's injuries and condition has not been released.

After a preliminary investigation, police determined the shooting was the result of an argument, Miramontez said.

The lockdown at Shoemaker was initiated at around 2 p.m. and was lifted at around 2:35 p.m., the district said.
