What was aimed to be a week of Hip-Hop discovery and good times at SXSW turned sour briefly as one person was injured in a shooting on Sixth Street.
Saturday night a report of shots fired at Sixth Street and San Jacinto in Austin, Texas, left one injured and incited a scramble of people who were on the busy strip of bars and clubs.
“There was a loud pop that I heard,” a man present for the festivities stated to Deadline.
#AustinPD is working a shooting call in the 300 block of E. 6th St. One person will be transported to the hospital. Individuals have been detained, but still searching for others that may have been involved. Please avoid the area as the investigation continues.
