AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Austin Police Department said it was considering a woman’s death as suspicious after she was shot at a northeast Austin apartment and later died Thursday morning.
Police said at 2:26 a.m. officers were called to the area of Berkman and Reagan Hill Drives for a shooting. That’s just south of U.S. Highway 183 and east of Cameron Road.
Officers responded within six minutes and found 32-year-old Marisela Gonzalez shot inside an apartment unit.
Austin-Travis County EMS took her to the hospital, and shortly after arriving, she was pronounced dead, according to police. ATCEMS said she was originally transported with a critical, life-threatening injury.
During the investigation, police determined Gonzalez had been in an altercation with another person, which escalated to the shooting.
Officers believe this is an isolated incident. A person of interest has been identified, but no arrests have been made.
This case is being investigated as Austin’s 54th homicide of 2022.
