On Tuesday, September 12, 2017 at approximately 4:31 p.m. Austin Police officers responded to a shooting call at the CVS Pharmacy at 1701 E. Parmer. Upon arrival, officers observed Alfred Lockett lying on the ground outside of his teal colored Infiniti. He had sustained obvious trauma to his body. Several citizens on scene had removed Mr. Lockett from the Infiniti in an attempt to save him. Austin-Travis County EMS also arrived and took over resuscitation efforts, however Lockett succumbed to his wounds and was pronounced on scene at 4:48 p.m.
Witnesses reported seeing a red Toyota being followed by a teal Infiniti. Both vehicles were driving at a high rate of speed northbound on Dessau Rd. Upon approaching the E. Parmer lane intersection, the Toyota turned into the CVS parking lot followed by the Infiniti. Both vehicles came to a stop. The driver of the Toyota exited and walked back toward Lockett who remained sitting inside the Infiniti. The driver of the Toyota raised a handgun and fired into Lockett from several feet away. The Toyota driver walked back to his car and drove from the scene.
The driver of the Toyota is described as a Hispanic or Caucasian male, approximately 5’10”, thin build and short brown hair. He is described as possibly being in his late 20s to 30s.
The Toyota is described as possibly being a red Camry with dark tinted windows with black rims.
Homicide detectives are speaking with witnesses and also attempting to determine if this was a road rage incident or if both men knew each other previously.
The Travis County Medical Examiner will conduct an autopsy this morning.
