AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin police are searching for a two shooting suspects, but without any help from the man they wounded.

A 911 caller from the Austin Suites Hotel at 8300 North Interstate 35 reported hearing three shots fired at 2:45 a.m. A second caller said there were four shots and that a man was hurt.

When police arrived, they did not find a victim.  The man shot later returned to the hotel, but was completely uncooperative with investigators’ questions.

Detectives finally managed to get a vague description of a man and woman involved in the shooting, but not much else.

They sent the victim to UMC Brackenridge. APD describes the man’s injuries as “minor.” provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
