No arrest made after shooting prompts Austin SWAT to respond to apartment complex

The complex is the same location of a deadly shooting that happened last month.

AUSTIN, Texas — A shooting at a northeast Austin apartment complex on Monday evening sent one person to the hospital and prompted the SWAT team with Austin police to respond. The SWAT situation is over, but no arrest has been made.

Police said officers were called to 7610 Cameron Road around 7:40 p.m. after reports of shots fired at the apartment complex and a person down in the parking lot. 

A man was taken to Dell Seton Medical Center with a gunshot wound and potentially life-threatening injuries.

While officers were on the scene, witnesses notified them of a person of interest running from the scene into an apartment in the same complex. Officers set up a perimeter around that specific building and evacuated adjacent apartments, police said. 

Around 9:50 p.m., the Austin Police Department said the SWAT team was called to the scene. Residents were asked to avoid the area and stay inside.

Detectives were on the scene interviewing witnesses and checking for video of the incident.

By around 1 a.m. Tuesday, police said no one was found in the apartment and they could not find the suspect. The investigation into the possible shooting continues. Anyone with information or video of either incident is asked to contact APD or Crime Stoppers.

On April 30, 17-year-old Amonte Lamonte Watters was shot at the same apartment complex. Watters later died from his injuries on May 5.
