Suspect in North Austin shooting in custody after SWAT incident

APD says they have taken a homicide suspect into custody after a SWAT situation in the 1500 block of E Howard Ln. in North Austin.

Around 12:30 p.m., APD says it received a call from a woman saying someone had shot her in North Austin near River Oaks off I-35.

When police arrived on scene, they eventually found the woman with a gunshot wound. The victim died on scene.

Austin Police say their investigation led them to a male suspect who later barricaded himself in North Austin, resulting in SWAT being called on scene.

Police say the suspect emerged voluntarily and without incident. 

Police have not identified the victim or suspect at this time. Police do still believe this was a possible road rage incident.

Police say they have since detained a female person of interest, but she is not currently under arrest.
