Officer-Involved Shooting in Northwest Austin

Austin police are currently working the scene of an officer-involved shooting that happened on Friday morning.  According to a tweet from the Austin Police Department, a car chase began in the 7600 block of Wood Hollow Drive after police responded to a call about a man with a gun.

The chase eventually came to an end at the intersection of Spicewood Springs and Mesa Drive after an officer's patrol car hit the front-end of a black Mazda that was being chased.

At least one shot was fired by an officer and the driver was transported to the hospital with serious injuries.

No officers were reportedly injured.

APD will be giving a briefing at some point later in the morning.
