Austin woman detained after suspicious death Sunday morning

Posted: Updated:

Police are questioning an Austin woman following a suspicious death overnight at a Northwest Austin apartment complex.

A man was found dead early Sunday morning at Great Hills Apartments on Morado Circle and neighbors who wouldn't go on camera told Fox 7 it's the man's girlfriend who is now a person of interest.

A little after 3 this morning Austin police responded to a possible shooting call at the complex.
When they got there a white male who police say had suffered obvious trauma was shortly pronounced dead.
Police detained a Hispanic woman who was still being questioned as of this morning.

"We're not sure of her exact involvement.  She's just being questioned by the homicide detectives at this point.  Like I said it's still early on in the investigation.  Once they determine her involvement, if any, then we'll know where we're going with that from there," said Corporal David Boyd with Austin Police.

We also spoke with another neighbor who wouldn't go on camera.

She lives next door and said she heard several gunshots during the night.

Police say they will most likely be releasing more information on this Monday.
