Police said on Twitter that they were on the scene of an active shooting and asked nearby residents to shelter in place and avoid the area.

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.

"We do not think that this individual is out targeting random people to shoot them", Chacon added, warning, nonetheless that "He is still at large, we do think that he is armed and he is very much risky". He's described as being 5 foot 7 with an average build.

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

He said that Broderick was a former deputy with the Travis County sheriff's office, which is based in Austin.

Broderick was last seen wearing a gray hoodie, sunglasses, and a baseball cap, officers said. A child linked to this incident is safe, Chacon said. I thought someone had just fallen down or something. Authorities advised residents to take shelter and leave the area, fearing that the gunman could take hostages. He didn't hear any shooting. "Some had pistols, some had rifles and they were strapping on bulletproof vests". She said they responded to an area that included a strip mall, several retail stores with a large apartment complex behind it. "There were cops coming from everywhere".
