According to Austin-Travis County emergency services, three adults are dead in what is being described as an active shooter incident near the Arboretum shopping center in northwest Austin, Texas, CNN reported on Sunday. According to emergency services, all three victims suffered gunshot wounds. Residents are being urged to avoid the scene and the suspect, identified as 41-year-old Steven Broderick, is still at large. While not yet confirmed, Broderick appears to be the same suspect as the Travis County Sheriff’s Office detective who was charged in June 2020 with the sexual assault of a child and placed on administrative leave. After the attack, the Austin Police Department said that it appears the shooting is related to a domestic incident and not a risk to the general public.
