Shooting Reported Near SXSW Festival

A shooting resulted in an injury and an arrest early Sunday morning on Austin’s 6th Street, which is South By Southwest’s main thoroughfare.

“There was loud pop that I heard. There was a pause of a second or two, then the people in the crowd started shouting ‘a shooting,’ and everybody started running,” festival-goer Matthew Carey said. Paramedics responded and at least one person suffered a gunshot wound, Carey said. Another person was seen being taken away in handcuffs.
