Before Thanksgiving, a Texas man was shot and killed in a Walmart parking lot.
On the eve of Thanksgiving, police in Texas are investigating a fatal shooting in the parking lot of a north Austin Walmart.
According to KXAN, at 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday, someone called 911 to report a guy had been shot at the Walmart on Norwood Park Boulevard, near U.S. 183 and Interstate 35. Officers discovered the man with multiple gunshot wounds at the scene.
Before emergency services arrived, police attempted to save the man’s life. The man was taken to the hospital by emergency services, where he died.
“The gunfire occurred in the Walmart parking lot, not inside the store,” Austin police officer Juan Asencio told KXAN. “Right present, we don’t have very good descriptions. We are aware that there are several suspects.” The incident occurred while the store was still open, according to police. Homicide investigators met with witnesses and reviewed store CCTV footage on Wednesday night and Thursday. The Austin Police Department has been approached for comment by the Washington Newsday.
