A shooting near SXSW festival in Austin has left one person injured.

The incident took place near 6th street - an area whose venues featured many SXSW events this year - in the early hours of Sunday morning. Austin police have detained several suspects and the case is still ongoing.

“This comes on the heels of what has been a violent weekend in Austin where we have seen multiple shootings, and this is unacceptable,” Austin Police Chief Brian Manley said. “We are not going to let our entertainment district be turned into a place where shootings become a common occurrence.”

Nicole Moudaber's current 15-date spring tour included this year's SXSW.
