AUSTIN (Texas) -- Four people were injured and shot in downtown Austin on Sunday morning, as the city hosted the annual South by Southwest festival.

At 2:50 a.m. the Austin Police Department advised people to leave the area, and warned via Twitter that the gunman is still at large.

Police tweeted that a suspect had been taken into custody just before 5 a.m.

The Austin-Travis County EMS and police said that the injuries sustained by the victims were not life-threatening and that they had all been transported to the hospital.

SXSW Festival was forced to go virtual by the coronavirus pandemic.

As the festival came to an end, multiple shootings occurred . This prompted Austin's police chief to promise more security for the city's entertainment district.

This week-long festival of arts and technology mixes politics, entertainment, and tech. It began in 1987 as an opportunity for emerging bands and has since grown to be an international event that includes movie premieres
