AUSTIN (KXAN) — Authorities are working to determine how an 18-year-old man was shot after midnight Thursday.

Austin police responded to the intersection of Shag Bark Trail and Shadyview Drive around 12:45 a.m. for the shooting call which was changed to an aggravated assault case.

Austin-Travis County EMS took the man to Dell Seton Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.

Investigators said, because of the evidence at the scene, they aren’t certain if there is a suspect; the shooting may have been self-inflicted. Police will need to question the man when he is stable.
