Three dead in 'active attack' shooting incident in northwest Austin, medics say

Stephen Broderick

A massive multi-agency manhunt including the Federal Bureau of Investigation and U.S. Marshals are in Austin hunting for an armed suspect wanted for killing at least three people near an apartment complex earlier on Sunday. EMS spokeswoman Capt. Christa Stedman said early Sunday afternoon that it was still an active scene and that no arrests have been made.

EMS reported that the first 911 call came in at 11:44 a.m. On Sunday, police swarmed the area searching for 41-year-old Stephen Broderick, who is considered armed and unsafe.

According to Chacon, people should still be vigilant as the suspect is still at large. He didn't hear any shooting.

An Austin police officer runs near a helicopter that stopped to pick up law enforcement personnel at the scene of a deadly shooting in Austin, Texas, April 18, 2021. "Some had pistols, some had rifles and they were strapping on bulletproof vests".

Authorities said they do not know the direction Broderick headed or whether he is in a vehicle or on foot. The area where officers responded includes a strip mall and several retail stores with a large apartment complex behind it.
