TCSO Investigates Homicide at Apartment Complex

On October 18, 2020, at 1:21 a.m., the Travis County Sheriff’s Office received several calls reporting multiple shots being fired at an apartment complex in the 13800-block of The Lakes Boulevard.

When deputies arrived, they found a young Hispanic male who had been shot. Deputies began CPR before medics with Austin-Travis County EMS took over. Their efforts were unsuccessful, and he was pronounced deceased at 1:45 a.m.

An autopsy was conducted Monday morning by the Travis County Medical Examiner’s Office. Per TCSO policy, his identity will not be released because he is a juvenile.

Evidence indicates this is an isolated incident and the public is not in danger. Detectives continue to investigate leads in this case and ask anyone who may have information to contact the TCSO Tip Line at (512) 854-1444.

This is the fifth homicide investigated by the Travis County Sheriff’s Office in 2020.
