Austin police, calling the situation "an active shooting incident," said they were searching for a suspect.
"While a suspect is still at large, it appears this is a domestic situation that is isolated and there is no risk to the general public," Austin police said on Twitter.
The shooting occurred near a popular shopping area in the northwest part of the city, which is the capital of Texas.
Police know the identity of the gunman, according to a report by KVUE-TV in Austin.
- We were just driving home from the farmer's market and I was looking on Facebook. And somebody shared a news article about it. And so I just read the article and realized it was our intersection. I'm a little worried just because we know a lot of our neighbors and our dogs were here and everything. But-- and you know, I guess it's our neighborhood, so that's really scary.
