Three of five people injured in a weekend shooting in downtown Austin were seriously hurt, police said Monday.
Austin-Travis County EMS previously had said in a tweet that five people were transported to local hospitals with “serious, potentially life threatening injuries” after the early Sunday shooting.
Police have not released information about a suspect or arrests.
A spokesman for the Austin Police Department confirmed Monday that the incident is being investigated by the aggravated assault unit but did not provide further details.
The shooting happened in a commercial area of the Texas capital, in the same block as a homeless shelter and within blocks of a police station.
