Austin police are conducting a manhunt in northwest Austin after three people were killed in a shooting at an apartment complex in the Arboretum area.

The scene was previously reported as a possible shooter situation, however, Austin Police Department now says it appears it was an isolated domestic event.

According to Austin-Travis County EMS, three adults (two women and one man) were pronounced dead at the scene, which took place at the Arboretum Oaks Apartments, located at 9617 Great Hills Trail. The incident was reported at 11:42 a.m. Sunday.

Police have tentatively named 41-year old Stephen Nicholas Broderick as the suspect and they’re considering him armed and dangerous. Broderick, a Black male, is said to be wearing a grey hoodie and a baseball cap. He is described as 5’7″ with an average build.

According to the Texas Rangers and Travis County court records, Broderick is a former Travis County Sheriff’s detective and was charged with sexual assault of a child in June 2020.

Residents are being asked to avoid the area and those who are in the vicinity are being asked to shelter in place.

Austin-Travis County EMS currently has 15 response assets on-scene. No additional patients have been reported at this time. APD SWAT vehicles were seen entering the area around 1:15 p.m.

APD reports nearby Loop 360 will be shut down in both directions from Spicewood Springs to U.S. 183 as the situation continues. APD says there is currently no threat to the public.
