AUSTIN (KXAN) — A fight that broke out between two families in southeast Austin ended with one man being shot, one being stabbed and another man being run over.

Austin police say officers responded to the 4900 block of Scarsdale Drive just before 11:30 a.m. When they got there, they learned that the person who suffered a gunshot wound drove himself to St. David’s South Austin Medical Center, where police have established a second crime scene. The stabbing victim was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

“Crime scene is at both scenes, trying to process both scenes at this time. They’re trying to figure out what happened and why everything happened. It seems like a dispute between two families,” said Senior Patrol Officer Demitri Hobbs with the Austin Police Department. “People scattered and went their separate ways.”

Officers Hobbs said the situation is ever-evolving because police are having to handle two crime scenes.

Police say it’s not known at this time whether drugs were involved.

All three men are in stable condition. Officers say at least one person has been arrested and that the public is not in any danger.
