    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.

Austin Police have released a composite sketch of suspect wanted in a shooting at the Cameron Greens Apartments located on Cameron Rd that left one person dead and another injured.

On Tuesday around 9:15 p.m. police say a black male approached 19-year-old Reynaldo Ortega in the parking lot. After a disturbance occurred between the two, the suspect shot Ortega multiple times killing him.

Following the shooting, the suspect shot another Hispanic male at the same apartment complex.

Ortega was pronounced dead at the scene and the Hispanic male was taken to UMC Brackenridge, where he remains in stable condition.

The suspect is described as a clean shaven black male with a dark complexion. He is 18 to 20 years old with a thin build and short hair. He was last seen wearing dark pants and a dark hoodie.

Police also believe the suspect may be associated with a large American-made, light colored SUV.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Homicide tip line at 512-477-3588 or Crimestoppers at 512-472-TIPS.
