A suspect was arrested Monday after three people were killed in a shooting in Austin, Texas, over the weekend. The suspect was arrested Monday morning outside Austin after two people spotted him and notified authorities, police said in a statement.
Police identified the suspect as Stephen Broderick, 41. He is a former deputy for the sheriff’s office in Travis County, which includes Austin, interim Police Chief Joe Chacon said at a press conference Sunday afternoon.
Police responded to a call of a shooting around 11:45 a.m. CT Sunday and found two women and one man injured, Chacon said. They later died.
The preliminary indication was that the suspect knew the victims.
