AUSTIN (KXAN) — A few minutes after the deadly shooting on Sixth Street early Sunday morning, a second unrelated shooting took place in a parking garage in the 800 block of Trinity Street, near the intersection with Eighth Street.
Police say Vincent Hale, 24, has been charged with aggravated assault after firing a gun in the parking garage. Hale was tackled and disarmed by witnesses.
While the suspect was taken to the hospital, no one was shot in the incident and no bystanders were injured.
“One individual did pull out a weapon and fired it at another individual and so given the fact that we had multiple shots fired on Sixth Street and we had another incident that occurred several blocks away with shots being fired the initial concern was that we had an individual that was engaging in an active shooter tactics in an entertainment district. But again that’s not what our assessment is at this point,” explained APD Chief of Staff Brian Manley, Sunday.
