AUSTIN (KXAN) — A shooting victim taken to St. David’s Medical Center in Austin has died. Two additional shooting victims were also taken to the hospital, but were not in life-threatening condition. The two were later moved to South Austin Medical Center.
Denise Bradley, vice president of communication and community affairs for St. David’s HealthCare, says the shooting did not occur at the hospital, adding that patients and employees are safe and the hospital is secure.
Austin police were called to the hospital at 8:16 p.m. after a Pflugerville officer working security at the hospital was alerted to the situation outside. Yellow caution tape surrounding the hospital entrance marked the location where the body was dropped off.
Officers could not say if the man was dead when he arrived to the hospital or if he died after being dropped off.
The incident began at a gas station at the corner of St. John’s Avenue and I-35. Police are still working to learn what led up to the shooting.
