One man dead after shooting in East Austin

Police are investigating a deadly shooting in East Austin. It happened at around 3:30 a.m. at Sweeney Lane and Sweeney Circle which is a block away from Manor Road.

Witnesses say they heard about six gunshots seconds before seeing the victim being taken to the hospital in a car. The still unidentified victim died at the hospital a short time later.

Hours before the shooting, neighbors say there were two separate fights outside the apartment complex involving several people.

Neighbors believe the victim was involved somehow and they say that the shooting is retaliation but police have not confirmed that yet.

Police are still in the process of notifying the victim's family before they release his name.

No arrests have been made.

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
