AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Austin Police Department is investigating a homicide in a “tent community” at the 9900 block of North Lamar Blvd. One man was found dead, APD said.
Officer Alexandra Parker said a little before 7:30 a.m., 911 got a call about a shooting at a “tent community” behind the Inn Town Suites. They found a man with “obvious signs of trauma.”
Roughly 15 minutes after police arrived on scene, that man, believed to be roughly 30, was pronounced dead, Parker said.
There is a person of interest in the case but that nobody has been arrested, Parker said in a news conference Saturday morning. She said there is no known threat to the public and that it appears to be an isolated incident.
Police did not release information about the victim or the suspect. This is a developing story.
