AUSTIN (Talk1370.com) -- One man is dead and two others were injured after a shooting early Sunday morning in North Austin.

Police were called to the La Preferida Bar at 10205 North Lamar Boulevard just after 1:45 a.m. Sunday on a 9-1-1 call of shots fired. When first responders arrived, they found three victims on the scene who had sustained gunshot wounds.

One of the victims was pronounced deceased on the scene; the other two were transported to a nearby hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Witnesses told police a fight broke out inside the bar between the victims and several Hispanic male suspects; after the fight moved into the parking lot and shots rang out, the suspects fled the scene in a white Cadillac Escalade truck with chrome wheels.

Anyone with information on the case is urged to call Crime Stoppers at (512) 472-TIPS.
