UPDATE: Search continues for Waco shooting suspect


WACO, Texas – UPDATE: Waco Police have released the name of the suspect in Monday’s deadly shooting.

Officers are searching for 17-year-old SirOcean Unique Calhoun.

Waco Officers responded to a shooting in the 900 block of Houston Street on Monday afternoon. It was determined that after a family argument/fight over a bicycle, Calhoun shot and killed one individual and wounded a child.

Calhoun fled on foot from the scene and was thought to have been hiding in a family member’s apartment located in the 1700 block of Dallas Circle. SWAT and negotiators responded to assist, and it was eventually discovered Calhoun was not in the apartment.

Calhoun took out a handgun at the scene and started firing the weapon. Calhoun shot and killed 31-year-old Willie Steve Kiser, of Waco. Kiser was struck at least twice – once in the back and once in the arm. During the shooting, an 11-year-old boy was struck in the face by the gunfire.

Calhoun was last seen wearing blue and gray shorts. He is still considered armed and dangerous. He is wanted for the murder of Kiser. An additional warrant has also been obtained.

Kiser was pronounced dead at a local hospital. An autopsy was ordered by Justice of the Peace Lee. The juvenile was transported by ambulance to a hospital out of our area for additional treatment. At last check, his condition was critical.

Anyone with additional information on the shooting or the whereabouts of Calhoun is asked to contact Waco PD at 254-750-7500.
