Cedar Park police say the suspect who shot three officers responding to an emergency call Sunday afternoon has surrendered peacefully and has released all of his family members who were being held hostage.


The Austin Police Department wants to curb aggressive driving on Interstate 35. Starting Sunday, March 17, APD and other law enforcement agencies will increase their operations along the I-35 corridor. The crackdown will continue until Saturday, March 23.

APD says they’ll be looking for those who speed, tailgate, pass emergency vehicles, and fail to signal or wear a seat belt.
