APD investigates fatal shooting in South Austin

Posted: Updated:

Austin police are investigating a shooting that left a young man dead.

At about 10:20 p.m. Sunday night, Austin Police Department officers were dispatched to the 4500 block of Lareina Drive. A white man, in his late teens, had been shot and was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to investigators, they've received another call about shots being fired at 739 W. William Cannon Drive at about the same time.

Detectives have been able to link the two locations.

The Travis County Medical Examiner's Office has ruled the young man's death a homicide.

The young man's name will not be released until positive identification has been made and his next of kin have been notified.

Detectives say they have identified persons of interest in this case.
