Suspect in Texas shooting still at large

Police in Texas say a man suspected of opening fire in a crowded entertainment district of the city of Austin, killing one woman, was probably aiming at someone else.

Authorities said the 24-year-old suspect remains at large, more than a day after the shooting along Austin's famed Sixth Street of music clubs.

A judge has signed a murder arrest warrant with a 2 million dollar (£1.5 million) bond.

A witness told police the suspected gunman had been shoved by another man when he pulled out a handgun tucked into his waistband. Investigators found four bullet casings near a 20-year-old woman who was fatally shot in the head.

Three other women were taken to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Police have described a "chaotic" scene during the shooting.
