APD searching for gunman in deadly NE Austin shooting

Posted: Updated:

Austin police are searching for the suspect in a shooting Tuesday night at a northeast Austin apartment complex that left one person dead and another with life-threatening injuries.

The shooting took place at the Cameron Greens Apartment complex in the 5700 block of Cameron Road.

Calls to 911 reporting the shooting came in around 9:15 last night. When police arrived at the scene of the incident, they found a male in his late teens or early 20s dead on the scene, and another male who had sustained a gunshot wound to the head. The victim was transported to Brackenridge Hospital with life-threatening injuries.

At this time, detectives do not have a lot of information about a possible suspect, but they told FOX 7 they believe the shooter is a man, and that he was wearing baggy clothes at the time of the shooting.  

"They are still trying to determine what relationship existed between the suspect and the victims," said Officer Traver Stefan, with the Austin Police Department.

The second victim has successfully undergone surgery and is listed as being in stable condition.
