“It is unknown if there is one, or multiple suspects involved,” police said.
A gunman is at large after a mass shooting that left 13 people injured in Austin, Texas, early Saturday.
Two victims are in critical condition and 11 are in stable condition, the Austin Police Department said.
After the gunfire was reported at 1:24 a.m. local time, “a large crowed” dispersed, police said.
“It is unknown if there is one, or multiple suspects involved,” police said, adding that it appears to be an isolated incident.
“The uptick in gun violence locally is part of a disturbing rise in gun violence across the country as we exit the pandemic,” Austin Mayor Steve Adler tweeted, “APD and the City Council have initiated multiple violence prevention efforts in response- but this crisis requires a broader, coordinated response from all levels of government. One thing is clear – greater access to firearms does not equal greater public safety.”
Adler added, “We are fortunate not to have any fatalities but remain concerned for the two individuals in critical condition.”
“We urge you to please call 911 or the APD tip line if you think you have relevant information,” he said.
