AUSTIN (KXAN) — One man is dead and another is in the hospital with life-threatening injuries after two separate Sunday night shootings in Austin.

APD responded to a shooting Sunday evening in the area of North Lamar Boulevard and U.S. Highway 183 in north Austin.

When officers arrived, they discovered a man in the street and started performing life-saving measures. Though Austin-Travis County EMS medics continued those efforts, the man was later pronounced dead.

In a separate shooting later Sunday, a man suffered serious, potentially life-threatening injuries in southeast Austin Sunday night, police said.

Officers were called to 1320 E. Oltorf St., just west of Interstate 35, around 10:50 p.m. for a shooting.

Austin-Travis County EMS medics took the man to a local trauma center with potentially life-threatening injuries.

At last check, Austin police had no one in custody and the victim was alive at the hospital.

KXAN will update this story as more information becomes available about the incidents.
