UPDATE: South Austin Shooting Ruled Murder
Updated: Monday, June 23 2014, 03:25 PM CDT
3:15 p.m. UPDATE: Police now say the shooting that left a teen dead in South Austin Sunday night was murder.
Investigators say APD officers were dispatched at around 10:30 p.m. to a shooting call at 4500 block of Lareina Drive, just south of East Ben White Boulevard between South 1st Street and South Congress Boulevard,
When officers arrived they found a male in his late teens dead in the roadway.
Detectives say they've been able to link this incident to a shots fired call that occurred about the same time at an apartment complex in the 700 block of W. William Cannon Dr.
Detectives say they've identified persons of interest in this case.
The Travis County Medical Examiner's Office has ruled this death as a homicide. The deceased's name will not be released until positive identification and next of kin notification has been made. Officials say.
Breaking overnight, Austin homicide detectives are looking into a suspicious death in South Austin. Police were called out to a possible shooting late Sunday night. They found a man's body in the street on Lareina Drive, near South 1st and Ben White.
As of early Monday morning, police have not made any arrests and do not have a suspect or vehicle description. Police are hoping that the person that called 911 could be a possible witness and help them catch the person or people responsible.
Officers came to Lareina after getting a call about a possible shooting around 10:20 p.m. Sunday. They found the man lying dead in the middle of the road with traumatic injuries to his body. A few minutes later, they began investigating a second scene at an apartment complex on William Cannon near S. 1st. Police tell KEYE officers had been there about 15 minutes earlier on a shots fired call, but police say they couldn't find anything because the caller gave them the wrong address.
"According to Homicide, there doesn't appear to be any type of threat to the community that they need to be worried about," said Sgt. David Daniels of APD. "They're just trying to interview additional people and witnesses to figure out what happened."
Sgt. Daniels says anyone with any information should call the Homicide Tip Line at 512-477-3588.
