AUSTIN (KXAN) - An overnight shooting in North Austin injured one person.

EMS crews took one person to the hospital.
Just last month, Rundberg-area motels unveiled a new crime-fighting tool.
As police in North Austin kept up the heat on prostitutes, drug dealers and gang members the weekend of May 17, low-budget motel owners along a nearby strip of Interstate 35 tried out the new, low-tech tool. It red-flags potential troublemakers or criminals looking to rent an inexpensive room.
A simple printed list handed out to budget motel staff identifies several dozen people Austin officers have arrested in the recent past.
The list shows an individual's name, birth date and the number of times police have arrested them, as well as the number of arrests in the Rundberg Lane area. Some on the list are shown as being arrested more than 40 times.
