Police said they have dealt with the suspect before.
"So I believe that any time we do not have a suspect in custody, that there is always a danger to the public. This was not a random act of violence. This was a targeted act. So, therefore, until we get the suspect in custody, there's always a threat to the community," said Corporal Marcus Davis with the Austin Police Department.
The police department asked anyone with information on the shooting to call Crime Stoppers at (512) 472-8477.
