AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin Police said an 11-year-old boy was shot in the shoulder Tuesday night in east Austin.

According to APD, the boy was inside his home on East Third Street when multiple shots were fired from outside at 11:30 p.m. That is between Attayac and Navasota streets in the East César Chávez neighborhood.

We spoke with the victim’s sister outside of their home.

“He got some food to cook and then all you hear is gunshots going off, and he screams ‘I got shot,’” she said. She didn’t want to be identified out of fear for her safety.

Austin-Travis County EMS said paramedics took an adolescent patient to the hospital with serious but not expected to be life-threatening injuries.

APD said no suspects are custody. Witnesses told officers they saw a truck driving nearby but were not sure if it was connected to the shooting.

“We didn’t see anything, but almost immediately we started to hear the neighbors screaming at the top of their lungs,” said Laura Morgan, who lives next door to the family’s home.

The victim’s sister said she, her mother and her boyfriend went outside after the gunfire stopped, and no one was there. 

“I don’t know who, what, why,” she said. “Angry. Definitely angry.”

Her little brother, who she said spends most of his free time playing Pokémon, is expected to be OK.

“It could have been worse,” she said.

But she wants to know who did this.

APD told KXAN the call came in 11:32 p.m. Tuesday. Witnesses said police showed up to the scene quickly. The investigation is ongoing.
