Austin police are investigating a shooting in East Austin after a man was shot in the leg.

Police said they were dispatched to the 1100 block of Chicon Street Monday evening after reports of a victim with a gunshot wound. ATCEMS said they transported a man in his 40s to Dell-Seton with non-life threatening injuries.

Officers are still at the scene searching for a suspect. The SWAT team was called out to the scene at 9:53 p.m. after the people inside the home refused to leave.

SWAT officers entered the home around 2 a.m., but the man they were looking for was not inside.

The Huston-Tillotson was briefly locked down as a precaution. No other information was released.
