Sixth Street shooting leaves four injured on last day of SXSW festival

Four people were injured in a shooting on Sixth Street on the last day of SXSW.

APD said a suspect is in custody after four people were shot on Sixth Street early Sunday morning.


The shooting, which occurred at about 2 a.m. on Sunday, began after a "disturbance between two groups of people," APD said in an update Sunday afternoon.

All four people were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, Austin-Travis County EMS said.

The suspect is in custody, and APD said it will release more information on the shooting as it becomes available.

The Sixth Street incident came on the last day of the SXSW festival, an event that brings in thousands to Austin's downtown city streets. On Friday, an axe attack left three injured near nighttime district Rainey Street.
