When officers arrived, they heard screaming coming from inside the house, according to Austin Police Department Interim Police Chief Robin Henderson. They broke down the door.

Once inside, they discovered a woman who had been stabbed being held by a man brandishing a knife. Not long later, they started shooting. The suspect was hurt after being struck.

“Due to the exigency of the situation, to preserve life and prevent further harm to the individuals inside, the officers decided to force entry through the front door of the residence,” Henderson said during a news conference Sunday. “The female who had been held by the suspect was escorted outside of the residence by the officers.”

According to Henderson, there were three children inside the house, but they were safe.

In one of the bedrooms, police discovered the body of a lady who had been stabbed. Henderson stated that it is currently unknown how the parties involved are related.

As per policy, the policemen who fired their weapons were assigned to administrative responsibilities.
