Austin police are investigating a shooting on Pavillion Boulevard. It's the third shooting in less than 24 hours.

AUSTIN, Texas — The Austin Police Department is now investigating a third shooting in less than 24 hours.

The most recent happened Monday afternoon before 1:30 p.m. in the 11900 block of Pavilion Blvd. At least one person died in the shooting, APD confirmed.

APD said Austin 911 received a call claiming a woman had come from a hotel room with blood on her, saying she had been shot. When officers arrived at the scene, they found the woman and emergency crews transported her to a local hospital. She is in stable condition, according to APD.

Officers then went inside the motel room and found a man, who was pronounced dead at the scene at 1:32 p.m. Monday. Both victims were renting a room at the motel, but police said it was not clear how long they'd been staying there.

APD said preliminary information from the woman suggests that there are two possible suspects, but police did not share a description of the suspects Monday afternoon.

APD said there is no threat to the public but asked people to avoid the area as officers remain on scene to canvass the area.

APD is asking for the public's assistance for any information leading to an arrest. If you have information, APD is asking you to call the homicide tip line at 512-477-3588 or Crime Stoppers at 512-472-8477 (TIPS).  

On Sunday night, another incident was reported in southeast Austin in the 2200 block of East Riverside Drive. A man in that shooting was killed.

Then, early Monday morning, another shooting was reported in the Windsor Park area. Reports indicated a 40-year-old man suffered life-threatening injuries.
