Six people are dead after a series of shootings, lasting through the day and evening Tuesday in Austin and San Antonio. Police believe the killings are related.
The shootings started in the morning in Austin and extended into the evening.
The first victim was a school resource officer, shot just before 10:45 a.m. Tuesday.
A man and woman were found fatally shot in an Austin home a few hours later.
Then a bicyclist reported being shot just before 5 p.m. in South Austin. That person was expected to survive, police said.
Then, around 6 p.m., Austin police responded to a burglary call at another home. A man at the scene opened fire on police.
One of the officers was hit multiple times, sustaining non-life-threatening injuries, but the suspect sped away, interim Chief of Police Robin Henderson said at a news conference.
Police chased the suspect, which ended in a crash, and the armed suspect was arrested.
