A man was shot and killed inside his South Austin home on Monday night.

A 29-year-old man was shot and killed during a drug deal in a South Austin home on Monday night.


Austin Police officers responded to the incident just after 10 p.m on Brighton Road near Menchaca Road.

APD said a 911 caller reported hearing gunshots after dropping his brother off to buy marijuana. The caller then forced their way inside and called once they saw the victim in the kitchen.

Although the officers attempted life-saving measures on the man, he died before paramedics could arrive.

As of now, there is no information on suspects, although, APD says detectives are currently interviewing multiple people of interest.
