Two officers responding to call in southeast Austin have been shot and injured. There is limited information at this time, but APD tweeted that officers responded to a shots fired call in the 5500 block of Ponciana Drive before midnight and that the scene is not safe. The situation has now turned into a SWAT situation, which is just east of Interstate 35 and East Stassney. . The injured officers have been transported to the hospital and are in stable condition, the Austin Police Association says. Austin-Travis County EMS says one injured officer is in his 30s and the other is in his 50s. Police are advising people in the area to stay inside unless an officer knocks on your door and asks you to leave.

More specifically, Austin. I don't recall any major news coming from Austin for a very long time but now we have bombings, police being shot, what's next?
