AUSTIN (KJCE) -- A third shooting across Austin early Saturday left one man seriously injured at a north Austin restaurant.

Police were called to the Denny's restaurant at Interstate 35 and St. John's Avenue just before 6:30 a.m. Saturday morning.

According to police, the disturbance was between a customer and an employee. The customer attempted to leave without completing a transaction; the two got into a physical altercation, and the suspect fired several shots, some of which struck the employee.
