Man arrested on multiple warrants for December shootings

A man was arrested on multiple warrants in connection to two shootings in December. The Austin Police Department said marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine and more items were found in his car and home.

APD officers responded to two separate shootings in the East Riverside area on Sunday, Dec. 11, one in the parking lot of a pawnshop at 2121 E. Oltorf and one a few hours later at the Food Stop at 2223 Burton Drive.

In the pawnshop shooting, officers found several bullet casings and obtained surveillance video which showed a man getting out of a black Mercedes and shooting an AR pistol at a group of people. No one was injured.

In the Food Stop shooting, officers found a man with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the upper left chest. He was taken to the hospital for his injuries.

Details gathered by South Central Area Command patrol officers and the lead detective revealed 33-year-old Dequincy Fields as the suspect, says APD.
