Austin police have arrested a man dressed as Santa Claus who is suspected of shooting at least three people at a Halloween party early Sunday.
He was taken into custody and police believe he acted alone.
"While en route to the call, officers received a information on a secondary location that's just down the block", he said. City medics rushed all three to Dell Seton Medical Center in downtown Austin for treatment. A man in his twenties and a woman in her thirties were taken to the hospital with critical injuries, while another woman in her thirties had serious injuries.
A fourth victim refused medical treatment at the scene.
Police responded to the Austin neighborhood at 6:12 a.m. Sunday after multiple reports of a shooting.
Police say the man was dressed up for a Halloween party and knew his victims. Police say none of the victims injuries appear to be life-threatening at this time.
The suspect's name has not been released, and a motive has not been revealed.
