ABC News

One person was fatally shot and four others were shot and injured in Austin, Texas, early this morning, following two separate, unrelated incidents that put the city on edge, police said.

Initially police described the shootings as an "active shooter incident," but later Sunday morning, that description was revoked.

In regards to the first incident, police received a call at 2:17 a.m. about multiple shots fired in downtown Austin. The suspect fired into a crowd on 6th Street, police said, adding that it is unknown if the shooter had a connection with any of the victims.

Police are actively looking for the suspect. A possible person of interest is still being questioned.

One person -- a woman in her 30s -- was fatally shot and died at the scene. Three other females -- all in their 30s -- who were shot and injured were transported to University Medical Center Brackenridge in Austin with serious, but not life-threatening injuries. The fifth person is a male who was injured but refused care, police said.
