AUSTIN, Texas - The Austin Police Department is investigating a fatal shooting in East Austin that occurred late Saturday evening.
Officer Juan Asencio told FOX 7 this morning they got the call at 11 p.m. Saturday night.
A 911 caller said they heard gunshots near the 4000 block of Little Hill Circle.
After arriving on scene, officers say they found a man in the street with gunshot wounds.
"Officers did provide first aid to the victim until EMS arrived on scene. EMS arrived on scene and took over the first aid measures, but the victim did succumb to his wounds so he was not transported to the hospital," said Asencio.
Officer Asencio said homicide detectives were on scene talking to as many people as they could, but they are hearing different stories about what exactly happened.
Detectives are looking for a suspect but so far don't have any sort of description.
Police say they believe the incident was isolated and there is no threat to the public at this time.
