Three dead after apparent ‘domestic situation’ in Austin, Texas

 (CNN) — Three people were pronounced dead at the scene of a shooting in Austin, Texas, on Sunday, according to tweets from Austin-Travis County EMS.

The shooting appears to be “a domestic situation that is isolated,” a tweet from Austin police said.

Police identified the suspect, still at large, as Stephen Nicholas Broderick, 41.

It is unknown if Broderick fled on foot or in a vehicle, and authorities are concerned that he could be hiding or take a hostage, according to Austin Police Interim Chief Joseph Chacon.

“Obviously this is tragedy. We have people who have lost their lives out here,” Chacon said. “The danger still remains high at this point.”

Austin police, fire and EMS responded to the city’s Great Hills Trail and Rain Creek Parkway area around 11:42 a.m., where they found three people suffering gunshot wounds, according to officials.

The shooting was targeted and the three victims — two women and one man — knew Broderick, according to Chacon. A child was involved but has been located and is safe, he added.

Residents are advised to continue to shelter in place as the search for the suspect continues, Chacon said.

The suspect’s motive is currently unknown.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
