Ex-Texas deputy wanted in deaths of 3 is arrested

Austin shooting leaves at least 3 dead

Police in Austin, Texas, launched a manhunt on Sunday for a suspect, believed to be a former sheriff's detective, after three people were shot dead in an apartment complex earlier in the day. Interim Austin Police Chief Joseph Chacon said the suspect, Stephen Broderick, was considered armed and risky.

Austin police said that the three bodies located were all adults, including two Hispanic females, and one Black male.

Ambassador for what Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said would be a "difficult conversation " after the announcement. The breach exposed vulnerabilities in the supply chain as well as weaknesses in the federal government's own cyber defences.

According to local reports, Broderick was taken into custody after someone called 911 about a man walking on the side of the road.

She identified them as Alyssa Broderick, who Duron said withdrew from the district last fall, and Willie Simmons III, a senior at Elgin High School. Duron said Broderick was an "excellent student and athlete" who was on the basketball team. Broderick might have known the victims that were targeted. "Strong, both academically and athletically, he represented the best of Elgin ISD. He was captain of our football team; a friend to everyone he met; and most recently, recruited to play football for the University of North Texas".

Chacon said that Broderick was a former deputy with the Travis County sheriff's office, which is based in Austin.

Austin police say the incident happened at an apartment complex, and that it appears to be an isolated domestic event. His wife filed for a protective order and divorce shortly after his arrest.
