3 dead in Texas shooting, suspect at large, considered armed and dangerous: Police

Cops are on the hunt for Stephen Nicholas Broderick, 41.

Three people have been killed in what authorities are calling a domestic incident in Austin, Texas, on Sunday.

The incident took place around 11:40 a.m. local time in the 9600 block of Great Hills Trail, police said.

When officials arrived on scene, two women and a man were found shot to death outside an apartment building.

At a news conference later in the afternoon, Joseph Chacon, the interim police chief of the Austin Police, told reporters that the alleged suspect, Stephen Nicholas Broderick, 41, was still on the loose and was considered “armed and dangerous.”

“We don’t know if he is in a vehicle or on foot,” Chacon said. “We are asking for residents to continue to shelter in place.”

Chacon said the investigation was still ongoing and officers were searching for clues, but confirmed the shooting was of a domestic nature and the suspect allegedly targeted the three victims.

There was a child involved with the situation, and officers were able to locate and take the child into custody, Chacon said. It is not known what connection the child has to the alleged suspect or victims.

Police urged residents to remain vigilant and alert the authorities if they see the alleged suspect.

The FBI is assisting with the investigation.
