One person was killed, another injured in a shooting in Austin

A girl was shot and killed during an altercation in an Austin neighborhood late Tuesday, police said.

The girl, 16, fought with a man before he shot her shortly before 8:15 p.m. in the 5000 block of West Washington Boulevard, hitting her in the eye, police said. The suspect fled from the scene.

The girl, who police initially said was 14 years old, was taken to Loretto Hospital, where she was pronounced dead upon arriving in critical condition.

He was also seen with a gun, a witness told police.

No one has been arrested and detectives are investigating.

The girl is the second teenager shot dead in the city in as many days. A 16-year-old girl was killed and a woman injured on the South Shore on Monday, police said.
