(Reuters) - An active shooter in the Texas capital of Austin has left multiple victims, police said in a message on Twitter early on Sunday as local media reported one person had been killed.

"Active shooter incident downtown, multiple victims. Stay away from downtown," Austin police said in a message on Twitter. It was not immediately clear how many people were shot.

A woman in her 30s was killed in the shooting, the Austin American-Statesman newspaper reported on its website, citing the Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Services agency.

Reuters could not immediately confirm the report.

Local television station KXAN, citing paramedics, reported that people with gunshot wounds were spread across the area.

The Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Services agency confirmed in a message on Twitter that multiple people had been shot.

And yesterday:

At least 16 dead in Austin hot air balloon tragedy:

Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board will comb the site of a hot air balloon crash in central Texas on Sunday, a day after at least 16 people are believed to have died in the worst such crash in U.S. history.

"The balloon was occupied and it does not appear at this time there were any survivors of the crash," the Caldwell County Sheriff's Office said in a statement.
A spokeswoman for the Federal Aviation Administration said that at least 16 people were traveling on the hot air balloon. Lt. Jason Reyes of the state Department of Public Safety said late Saturday that officials would release an official death toll on Sunday.
