AUSTIN (KXAN) — Police have identified a man killed in a south Austin drive-by shooting late Friday night.

Officers responded to the 2200 block of East Stassney Lane around 11:15 p.m. Callers said it was a drive-by shooting and one person was shot.

At the scene, they found Oscar San Juan Jaimes, 19, with life-threatening injuries, according to a release from Austin Police Department.

Jaimes was taken to hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
