Several people were shot at an Austin neighborhood house party at 5941 West Thomas Street near the intersection of Thomas and Mason.
A woman who was shot approximately three times, was taken to Loretto Hospital by a friend or family member.
Police said two more people were shot at the party, but the victims weren’t at the scene when officers arrived.
Subsequent reports indicate the other shooting victims were taken in separate ambulances to Mount Sinai and Loyola Hospital.
Authorities said a male victim was shot in the chest and arm. His condition was not disclosed.
The shooter, who was apparently at the party, was described as an African-American man, approximately 19 to 20-years-old, 5’7’ to 5’8”, and about 130 to 140 lbs. He was last seen wearing a black skull cap.
At 12:40 a.m., police sources suggested one of the shooting victims was possibly dead.
