Shooting victim indicted in another murder


A Bell County Grand Jury has indicted a man shot in one incident in the murder of a Killeen man reported missing earlier in the summer.

Raymond McKinnon, Jr had left a Temple hospital against doctor’s orders where he had been taken after he was shot and was later connected with the earlier murder and brought back from Oklahoma to face the charges.

McKinnon was arrested in Lawton, Oklahoma after Temple police had connected the dots in the case.

McKinnon is charged in the death of 21-year-old Hasson Lindsey, Jr whose body was found along a roadway in rural west Bell County.

Lindsey was found July 17, but it was not known how long he had been there.

His death was ruled a homicide with a case later being developed against McKinnon.

McKinnon was also identified by Temple police as a man who had been the center of another investigation and incident that had occurred back on July 11.

Police say he was the man who had gotten out of a vehicle saying he had been shot following a traffic stop at Westfield Boulevard and and West Adams that  afternoon.

The officer making the stop stayed with the victim who by then had passed out, but relayed a description of the vehicle that had driven off from the scene

That car was stopped later after a short pursuit that resulted in a collision with a Temple patrol unit.

McKinnon and one of the occupants of the car had both been taken to the hospital for treatment.

The man, now identified as McKinnon had left the hospital against medical advice the next day.

At that time there had been no connection made between McKinnon and the missing man.
