AUSTIN - Austin Police are increasing patrols Saturday night at Barton Springs Pool after a man phoned in a threat.

Police say the man called 911 about noon saying he had automatic weapons and ammunition and that he was on his way to Zilker Park to kill children, women and officers.

Officers evacuated the pool about 2:30 p.m. and reopened it about an hour later, according to the pool's Twitter post.

Officers will remain at the park through the night.

Police have not yet made any arrests.
