AUSTIN, Texas — The Austin Police Department is investigating a shooting death near the Coronado Hills area in northeast Austin.

Police said a call came in at around 2:30 a.m. Thursday of an incident at the Rise at The Cameron apartment complex near Reagan and Berkman drives. Officers responded to the scene within six minutes.

Upon arrival, police found a woman in her 30s with a gunshot wound in a bedroom. Officers performed life-saving measures on the victim until EMS medics arrived. Medics then transported the woman to Dell Seton Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead shortly after they arrived.

Detectives were on the scene, looking for witnesses. APD said the woman was shot inside an apartment, but it's not clear at this time if it was her residence.

On Friday, she was identified as 32-year-old Marisela Gonzalez. Police said it is believed she got into an altercation with someone before she was shot.

APD said this incident is currently being investigated as a suspicious death, though that designation could change over the course of the investigation.

Police said a person of interest has been identified and there is no threat to the public.

No additional information is available at this time.
