AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin police are investigating what led up to an overnight shooting Thursday in the heart of the Entertainment District downtown.
Police say around 12:40 a.m., officers got a report of a shooting at Sixth and Neches streets.
Investigators say two men shot at one another. APD arrested Cyron Carter, 23, in connection with the shooting. Carter faces a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony.
One wounded man went to the hospital to be treated for serious, but not life-threatening injuries. Carter left in a car, but police found the vehicle and arrested him a short time later.
