Three people were fatally shot in what Austin-Travis County EMS is calling an “active attacker/shooter” incident Sunday morning.
The incident was reported about 11:45 a.m. in the 9600 block of Great Hills Trail in northwest Austin.
Authorities were urging people to avoid the area. Austin police told the Austin American-Statesmanthat the suspect is at large.
EMS spokeswoman Capt. Christa Stedman said early Sunday afternoon that she did not know the exact location where the three people were killed. She said they responded to an area that included a strip mall and a large apartment complex.
