Texas authorities say at least 13 people were injured, two of which are in critical condition after a shooting in downtown Austin.
According to CNN, Austin police are currently investigating and reviewing camera footage from multiple sources, including the Public Safety Camera System, footage from officers’ body cameras, and business surveillance video to determine what happened.
During a news briefing this morning, Austin Interim Chief of Police Joseph Chacon revealed that six people were taken to a hospital by the Austin Police Department. The Austin-Travis County EMS brought in another four for medical treatment. In addition, three other victims brought themselves into the hospital.
Cops have a very general description of the suspect and believe the incident was isolated to the area but could not say definitively that there was no additional public danger because the suspect is still at large, Chacon said.
Media: Chief Chacon will provide a media brief at 4:00 a.m. at E 9th Street and IH 35 SVRD Southbound (Valero gas station) regarding the shooting incident. https://t.co/gBcbUp8S2Y
