Austin Triple Shooting Full Details

According to police, the shooting happened in the 9600 blocks of Great Hills Trail near the Arboretum shopping center in Northwest Austin on Sunday afternoon.

The fatal shootings happened shortly before 12 p.m. local time, according to police. There were no other injuries, and the suspect fled the scene. According to police, Broderick was last seen wearing a gray hoodie, sunglasses, and a baseball cap.

Temporary During a press conference about 2:30 p.m., Austin Police Chief Joseph Chacon named Broderick as the man being investigated by police. Chacon said, “I will be putting his name out because it is a matter of public safety because at this point he is still not in custody.”

Chacon added, “He is still at large. We do think he is armed, and he is very much dangerous. … We do not believe this individual is out targeting random people to shoot them. That does not mean he is not dangerous … I don’t want anyone to think we are packing up and going home. We are going to continue to look for this individual because he continues to pose a threat to this community.”

Police were called to the scene after getting a report of an active shooter incident but later said on Twitter that the gunman knew the victims and that it was not a random assault. The department’s first tweet said, “APD is currently on scene of an active shooting incident at Great Hills Trail and Rain Creek Parkway. All residents are advised to shelter in place and avoid the area.”

Chacon told reporters, “Our preliminary investigation indicates that he did know the victims and that it was certainly targeted to them. However, I would say that the danger remains high at this point. And we want to make sure that people understand that part.”

According to police, there was proof that a child was involved, but the child was found and is safe and with police, according to Chacon. According to Austin Mayor Steven Adler, the shooting occurred at the Arboretum Oaks Apartments.

Then Austin Police tweeted, “At this time the Great Hills Trail scene is still active. We are still asking residents to shelter in place and report suspicious activity. While a suspect is still at large it appears this is a domestic situation that is isolated and there is no risk to the general public.”

Victims

All three victims, according to Chacon, were adults who have not yet been named. According to Chacon, two of the victims were Hispanic women and one was a Black man.
