3 Fatally Shot in Austin, And the Hunt for the Suspect is On

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) – Emergency responders say three people have been fatally shot in Austin and no suspect is in custody. The Austin-Travis County EMS says it has received no reports of other victims. EMS spokeswoman Capt. Christa Stedman said early Sunday afternoon that it was still an active scene. She says the first 911 call came in at 11:44 a.m. and that three adults have been fatally shot.

Police identified the suspect, still at large, as Stephen Nicholas Broderick, 41.

It is unknown if Broderick fled on foot or in a vehicle, and authorities are concerned that he could be hiding or take a hostage, according to Austin Police Interim Chief Joseph Chacon.
Police said on Twitter that they were on the scene of an active shooting and asked nearby residents to shelter in place and avoid the area.
