Shooting in downtown Austin leaves 1 dead, 3 wounded; suspect sought

A shooting in a crowded entertainment district of downtown Austin early Sunday set off a chaotic scene, leaving one woman dead and three others wounded and police searching for a suspect. 

Austin Police Chief of Staff Brian Manley said police received reports of gunshots in the crowded entertainment area shortly after 2 a.m. Police arrived to find a chaotic scene and five people shot. 

Manley says a suspect began firing into the crowd after an initial disturbance. 

He said the woman was pronounced dead at the scene, and three other women were taken to University Medical Center Brackenridge with gunshot wounds. Officials described those transported to the hospital as serious, but said their wounds were not considered life-threatening. 

Manley said another victim declined to be transported to the hospital. 

“It was a very chaotic scene,” Manley said. “A lot of people running in different directions with all the gunshots coming out.” 

He said officials are trying to determine who the suspects are, and he didn’t rule out that a suspect might be one of the people transported to the hospital. 

“We have multiple individuals, witnesses, that we are currently interviewing,” Manley said. “We had one individual who was initially noted as a person of interest, however that person’s status at this point is undetermined.”
