Austin police arrested a man on Thursday morning after reports of several gunshots being fired into the air downtown.
Austin police Lt. Dustin Lee said officers responded to a call for shots fired in the 500 block of East Seventh Street, between Neches and Red River Streets, around 2:30 a.m.
Police used HALO security cameras downtown to identify and stop a Chevrolet sedan that was spotted in the area.
During the stop, police found a handgun inside the car.
One of the occupants of the car was arrested and charged with deadly conduct, according to Austin police.
Police have not released the identity of man arrested.
Lee said no one was hit by gunfire, and authorities are still investigating the incident.
“The quick response and apprehension was due to a large number of officers on regular duty and overtime due to South by Southwest, combined with the information provided by the officers in the Real Time Crime Center,” Lee said.
