AUSTIN, Texas (AP) – A manhunt is underway for a former sheriff’s deputy wanted in the fatal shooting of three people in Austin, Texas.

An official said it isn’t known if the suspect was still in the city.

Interim Austin Police Chief Joseph Chacon said those who live near where the shooting happened late Sunday morning no longer had to shelter in place, but he said they should “remain vigilant.”

He said officials were transitioning the search for 41-year-old Stephen Broderick from that area to a “fugitive search.” Chacon said Broderick is suspected in the killing of two Hispanic women and one Black man.

He said Broderick knew the victims but did not elaborate on a motive.
