An "active shooter" scare in downtown Austin left at least one dead and four others wounded early Sunday, authorities said.

The scene after the "active shooter incident" in Austin, Texas, early Sunday. It turned out to be two isolated incidents, according to police. Dorian Santiago / via Twitter
Witness reports that someone was "firing a weapon into a crowd" in busy E. 6th Street were followed by a 911 call just seven minutes later that a gun had been used in a nearby parking garage.

Austin Police Chief of Staff Brian Manley told reporters that officers were initially concerned there was a gunman utilizing "active shooter tactics in the entertainment district."

At the time, police tweeted that there was an "active shooter incident" involving "multiple victims," adding: "Stay away from downtown"

Manley said that the first incident — which occurred at 2:17 a.m. local time (3:17 a.m. ET) — resulted in a "very chaotic scene with a lot of people running in different directions" due to "all of the gunshots."

Five people were struck by bullets — including a woman aged in her 30s who was pronounced dead at the scene.

The fatal incident was followed a short time later by the disturbance at the parking garage in which another shot was fired.

However, investigators later determined that they were "two unrelated incidents that occurred in close proximity both in location and time," Manley said.

Two women and a man were transported to hospital. A fifth patient refused to be treated.

EMS officials had earlier said that "multiple incidents" had occurred in the E. 6th Street area.

One of the scenes was in the vicinity of the Friends Bar.

Wonder who did it this time. BLM, ISIS or some lone crazy ass.

RIP to the woman who died.

Another crazed person, most likely. I think we can all agree that the mental health system in the US is totally stupid and benefits only if you've got insurance. Either crazed from mental issues or crazed due to lack of education and believes crazy ideals like Sovereign Citizens or something.

Don't see why people would be against some form of socialized medicine. It would benefit society if everyone had access to therapy. "You don't deserve free stuff"...well that woman didn't deserved to die, now did she?

i live in canada and our health care system was a real life saver for me since ive had so much medical related issues for almost all my life. at first i was thinking that the USA was forming a similar system but it turned out to not be the case which is unfortunate. Canada's system may not be perfect but i would say it is definitely helping people who would be in trouble otherwise.
