Authorities have arrested 41-year-old Stephen Broderick, whom authorities have accused of fatally shooting three people in Northwest Austin on Sunday.

Broderick was taken into custody after officials received multiple 911 calls around 7 a.m. a.m. about a man walking on Old Kimbro Road near U.S. 290 just outside Manor.

Officials sent a car by the area to confirm Broderick’s identity. Manor police officers and Travis County deputies arrested Broderick without incident.  He was armed with a loaded pistol, Manor police said.
