Sixth Street Shooter Still At Large
APD Assistant Chief Raul Munguia said a fight broke out on the sidewalk in the 300 block of East Sixth Street, near Vice bar, and "within seconds" someone pulled out a gun. Witnesses, including cops standing nearby, said they heard just a single shot fired, but at least four individuals were wounded, Munguia said, but none seriously. "It's very fortunate," he said. One woman was hit in the knee, a man was struck in his calf. Others appeared to have "flesh wounds," he said. After the gun went off "everyone took off running," Munguia said. "It was a stampede going all different directions. There was chaos, you could tell [from] the radio [transmissions]."
The shooter is still at large, though Munguia said there were plenty of eyewitnesses who have provided helpful information, including one witness who said the shooter appeared to be a Hispanic male wearing a white shirt with blood on it who took off running down an alley. When police searched the alley they found a handgun in a Dumpster. Police are now culling witness statements and video footage from surveillance cameras and from area businesses to try to identify the gunman.
