Police say the foreman has a Concealed Handgun License and was allowed to have the gun with him at work. Police say the suspect had recently returned to the site and had been threatening the foreman, so a police report was filed.
“I was actually driving in the area when I heard what sounded to be gunshots, but with the construction, I just assumed it was related to that,” said Senior Austin Police Officer Veneza Bremner.
Austin-Travis County EMS said both the victims are men, and they were taken to University Medical Center Brackenridge. The foreman suffered a serious injury, while the suspect suffered a potentially life-threatening injury.
