AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin police are looking for three suspects they say were involved in a drive-by shooting Wednesday.

Police say the two men and a woman drove to a convenience store in the 800 block of Vargas Road, which is southeast of where Montopolis Drive and U.S. Highway 103 meet. The driver, police say, “got into a disturbance” with someone there around 9 p.m.

They left, but then returned and shot at that person, police say.
