AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin police are investigating a deadly shooting Monday in south Austin.
APD said the shooting happened at 8:08 p.m. in the 1800 block of W. Slaughter Lane near Menchaca Road. APD said a man in his 20s was found dead at the scene, and while they don’t have a suspect, APD said during a briefing that “several witnesses” are being questioned at APD headquarters.
An “altercation” led to the shooting, APD said, and it happened in the parking lot of a gym in the area. APD said witnesses heard multiple gunshots and there are multiple scenes, specifically west of the intersection.
APD also said they received reports of people running through yards and hiding that could potentially have been involved in the shooting.
It’s being investigated as the 30th homicide of the year for APD.
