The Austin Police Department reported that two people were shot and a third person was stabbed after at least one suspect shot into a group of people during Easter celebrations just east of downtown on Sunday night.
APD received multiple calls that at least one shooter had opened fire into a crowd, which included families and large groups celebrating Easter, at around 8:15 p.m. Sunday at the 1600 block of Nash Hernandez Sr. Road, near Edward Rendon Park.
The suspect left the scene in a vehicle before police arrived, APD said. The department is currently holding a person of interest and is working with a vehicle description.
One person was escorted to the hospital with potential life-threatening injuries while another injured person was driven to the hospital, Austin-Travis County EMS said.
