The shooter, a black male with dreadlocks, has not been identified, and the alleged accomplice is on the loose. While police have arrested one suspect, another is still at large.

He was a skinny build
A black man with a skinny build is suspected of opening fire in an Austin Target store early this morning. Police have released video of the shooter, which the Austin Police Association tweeted. The shooting is currently being investigated by the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force. It’s unclear what prompted the gunman to open fire on the crowd. There are no immediate reports of casualties, but two people are in critical condition.
Police have not released a description of the suspect, but say that the Austin American-Statesman refused to print it because of ideological reasons. Though it is unclear if the suspect was a stranger, they cannot rule out the possibility that he may pose a threat in the future. The shooter was described as black, skinny, with dreadlocks. While there have been two arrests as of today, footage of the shooting shows large crowds of people queuing to get first aid. This delayed emergency services’ response. Police had to ride in cruisers to transport injured victims to hospitals, and police closed the area until the shooter could be identified.
