KILLEEN, Texas (KWTX) Three men were indicted Wednesday in connection with a shooting in April in Killeen that left a teenager who was in the wrong place at the wrong time seriously injured.

Preston Harrington, 18, of Killeen, was indicted for deadly conduct.

He remains jailed in lieu of bonds totaling $253,000.

Daran Cedric Hill, 41, and Dante Hervey, 22, of Killeen, were named in indictments charging aggravated assault.

They both remain in the Bell County Jail in lieu of $505,000 bonds.

The 15-year-old victim, identified only as “Seth,” was visiting friends at a home in the 3200 block of Longview Drive in Killeen with five children and one adult when gunshots pierced the residence at around 11:45 p.m. on April 7.

Seth, the only person injured, was struck in the head.

He was taken first to Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center and then was transferred to Scott & White Medical Center in Temple.

Killeen police Chief Charles Kimble said investigators believe the teenager was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

"(It was) retaliatory. It appears it was some kind of neighborhood beef and one group retaliated against another. Seth found himself in the middle of it, had nothing to do with it," Kimble said.

A fourth person arrested after the shooting, Donna Hervey, 44, of Killeen, was charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.

She remains jailed in lieu of $50,000 bond.
