Update: Austin man killed in Saturday shooting.

One man is dead Saturday following an early morning shooting in Austin.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, along with the Austin Police Department, is investigating what was originally labeled as a “suspicious death.”

According to a release from the Austin Police Department, the incident took place early in the morning at around 1:10 a.m. when Austin Police officers were called to a home at 110 12th Street NE via a 911 call regarding a shooting with multiple victims.

When officers arrived, they found one adult male gunshot victim. Despite lifesaving measures performed by officers, the victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to the release: “Officers further learned of others who were injured during the shooting.”

The report goes on to say that based on evidence and witness interviews, police believe the shooting was a targeted incident and there is not a threat to public safety.

Police are withholding the identity of the victim until an autopsy can be completed along with a formal identification and family notification has taken place.

While there is no word on a suspect at this time, a bystander living in the area said she heard four shots and witnessed a car leaving the scene on 12th Street Northeast before turning left on First Avenue Northeast and then right on 11th Street Northeast and speeding away. The bystander said they heard the shots between 1 a.m. and 1:25 a.m.

This is an active and ongoing investigation. Check back to the Austin Daily Herald as more information becomes available.
