Kimble says a no-knock warrant was used for James Scott Reed be he was known to be armed and violent, with a history of making terrorist threats, robberies and assault.

Kimble says someone inside the home began shooting as officers entered and police returned fire. Police didn't immediately say if Reed was believed to be the shooter or details on his death. Another person inside faces drug-related charges.

Killeen is 60 miles north of Austin.
