AUSTIN, Texas – One person was killed in a shooting in northeast Austin late Tuesday night.
At 11:30pm on Tuesday, May 9, the Austin Police Department (APD) received a call at the intersection of Manor Road and Rogge Lane, which is on the edge of the Windsor Park neighborhood. When police arrived on the scene, they located a man on a nearby street, Breeze Lane, who had been shot and had “trauma to his upper body”, according to an APD spokesman.
Crews initiated life-saving measures on the man, but he was later pronounced dead at the scene.
The APD is still at the scene and trying to connect what happened at the scene, as the 911 call came from a different location than where the man was found. KVUE is continuing to contact the police to obtain further information on this matter.
One person has been arrested, according to APD, but it is currently unclear whether he was arrested in connection with the man’s death or was arrested due to outstanding warrants. However, the APD said the shooting was an isolated incident and there was no immediate threat to the surrounding area.
