Suspects sought in shooting of man and woman in Del Valle

Travis County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a shooting on the 8300 block of Linden Road in the Del Valle area.

DEL VALLE, Texas (KXAN) — The Travis County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a Tuesday night shooting that left a man and woman in the hospital with gunshot wounds.

The shooting happened around 9:45 p.m. in the 8600 block of Linden Loop, just east of the Circuit of the Americas. Deputies say the man has multiple gunshot wounds and the woman was shot once. Austin-Travis County EMS says the man and woman were taken to two different hospitals with non-life threatening injuries.

The sheriff’s office says the suspects are known to the victims and for that reason they do not believe the public is in danger.

Authorities did not identify the suspects or provide descriptions. They say the investigation is in the early stages and details are being pieced together.

Over the past six months, there have been several homicides along Linden Road. In September 2016, four people were found dead after a house fire on Linden Road, in what authorities said appeared to be murder. Later that same month, two decomposed bodies were found in a field on Pearce Lane, near Linden Road.
