Police in a suburb of Austin, Texas, have given a description of a suspect involved in a mass shooting at a Juneteenth celebration. The incident occurred on Saturday night in Round Rock, where two people were killed and 14 others were injured.

The suspect is described as a Black male with a thin build, around 5 feet 7 inches tall, with short dreadlocks. He was wearing a white hoodie at the time of the shooting and is believed to be 19 to 20 years old. Authorities consider him armed and dangerous.

Round Rock Police Chief Allen Banks expressed sadness for the families affected by the incident, stating that the goal is to apprehend the suspect and ensure they are held accountable.

The shooting occurred during a fight between two groups near the vendor area at the Round Rock Juneteenth Festival in Old Settler’s Park. At least one person pulled out a gun and started shooting.

Emergency medical care was immediately provided to the injured by police officers and fire department personnel on-site. The injured, ranging from 10 to 62 years old, were taken to hospitals. Most have been released, and the rest are in stable condition and expected to be discharged soon.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the suspect’s arrest.
