Austin shooting leaves at least 3 dead

Three people are dead amid an active shooter incident in Austin, Texas

"We are concerned that he might possibly take a hostage and be himself sheltered somewhere waiting for us to leave".

The suspect in the deadly shooting that took place in Austin, Texas, is reported to be a former sheriff's detective who was charged with sexually assaulting a child in June past year. He said that the district attorney's office on Sunday filed a motion to revoke that bond and is actively supporting law enforcement as they pursue Broderick.

There are no reports of other patients at this time, ATCEMS said.

CNN has reached out to Austin police and fire for more information.

Austin-Travis County EMS said three adults were pronounced dead on scene.

Interim chief of police Joseph Chacon says that a child was involved, but is safe and now in custody.

Three people were killed Sunday during what police initially described as an "active shooting" in the city of Austin, Texas, on Sunday.

Reporters on the ground captured footage of a massive law enforcement presence. Police shut down a road, with patrol cars and police tape blocking it off. There are also several ambulances and two SWAT trucks at the scene, and two police helicopters and a drone overhead.

A number of roads were closed off in the area and people asked to report any suspicious activity as the hunt for the suspect continues. Less than a week after the Georgia shootings, 10 were killed at a supermarket in Boulder, Colo. And in the two weeks after, six died in an apparent familicide in Texas and seven in a SC attack, including the gunmen.
