Austin Police are searching for information that could lead to the arrest of two suspects that fired several shots during a confrontation at a northwest Austin residence Saturday morning.  

Austin Police Capt. Todd Clennon stated that officers responded to a report of shots fired at a residence in the 1100 block of 4th Avenue Northwest at approximately 10:20 a.m. Saturday morning.  Officers learned that there were four adults and an infant in the home and an adult male subject in the garage at the time of the shooting.  The adult male in the garage told officers that he was approached by two unknown subjects at the garage. A short verbal exchange occurred between them and the two suspects starting shooting at him.  The victim fled and was uninjured.

No one else in the residence was struck by bullets.

Officers located two .380 caliber shell casings and three .40 caliber shell casings on and around the driveway of the residence.  Captain Clennon stated that two bullets were recovered from the garage and one was found on the kitchen floor in the nearby residence after it had penetrated a refrigerator. 

The incident is still under investigation. The Austin Police Department does not believe this was a random act.

Anyone with information or video in the area is encouraged to contact the Austin Police Department at 507-437-9400.
