One dead, multiple injured in Austin shootings


At least two separate shootings early Sunday in downtown Austin, Texas have caused several injuries and claimed the life of a woman in her 30s, according to the Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Services.

According to Austin Police, there are “separate shootings within the same area. Both scenes are secure at this time.”

There are multiple victims with gunshot wounds at 208 East 6th Street, EMS says. Three people have been transported to the University Medical Center Brackenridge.

Authorities are urging people to stay away from the downtown area. Austin police had earlier referred to the event as an “active shooter incident” in a tweet. It is unclear if the shooter is now in police custody.
