More Details In Killeen Domestic Disturbance
One man is in critical condition after suffering a gunshot wound in the face and a second man is recovering from a knife wound after police responded to a report of a violent domestic disturbance Monday night. Early reports indicated that a woman was stabbed, but a correction was issued Tuesday evening.
Deputies arrived at the house on Chaparral Road south of Killeen and found blood on the porch and a man barricaded inside the house. Other deputies entered through a rear door and discovered that the house was on fire.
The man, identified as Wayne Eugene Remalay was taken into custody. He had been shot in the face and was airlifted to Scott & White Hospital.
Remalay got into an argument with the resident of the house, Susanne Lawrence. Paul G. McDonald was stabbed trying to intervene and a fourth man shot Remalay while defending him.
Charles Lawrence, who listed the house as his address, went to Killeen Police Monday night and informed officers he had been involved in the incident trying to defend his friend, who had been stabbed.
McDonald was treated at Metroplex Hospital and released.
Deputies have responded to reports of disturbances at the residence previously. Susanne Lawrence had an emergency protective order against Remalay at the time of the incident.
It appears that the fire, which destroyed the home, was set deliberately, but firm results are not yet available. On Tuesday, investigators with an accelerant-sniffing dog were trying to determine how the fire was started.
No charges have been filed.
