Two people were shot early Monday morning during Temple’s first home invasion incident of 2019, Temple Police spokesman Cody Weems said.
Two males in an apartment at Kensington Apartments, 400 Fryers Creek Drive, were allegedly shot when four unknown males broke into an apartment, started shooting and left the scene, Weems said.
Both man were believed to have non-life-threatening injuries, and were taken to Baylor Scott & White Medical Center-Temple.
A woman who was also in the apartment was uninjured, Weems said.
Nothing was reported stolen to Temple Police.
Officers responded to the shooting scene at about 1:15 a.m.
The first two homicides in 2018 were from violent home invasions that were drug-related robberies. It was because of the escalation of violent homicides that the Temple Police Department enacted a Violent Crime Task Force.
Those two homicides — 59-year-old Willie Howard and 36-year-old April Isaac — still remain unsolved.
Anyone with information about this latest active case, or any others, can call the Temple Police at 254-298-5500.
