WASHINGTON – One person was killed and four other people were wounded in separate shootings in downtown Austin, Texas, media reports said on Sunday.

“Separate shootings within the same area. Both scenes are secure at this time,” the Austin Police Department said in a Twitter post.

A 30-year-old woman was killed, CNN reported, citing Austin-Travis County emergency services officials.

Three people – two women and a man – were wounded in the shootings, emergency services officials said, adding that a fourth person declined to be treated by paramedics.

A few hours before the shootings, police had asked the public to stay away from downtown Austin due to an “active shooter incident.”

The motive for the shootings has not been determined and police did not say whether any suspects were under arrest.
