Law enforcement officials announced Monday they had arrested a former Texas sheriff's deputy suspected of fatally shooting three people in Austin. The suspect, Stephen Broderick, 41, was a property crimes detective for the Travis County sheriff's office until last June, when he resigned after being arrested on suspicion of sexually abusing a child. He was arrested "without incident" and had a pistol in his waistband. In the Sunday morning shooting, two Hispanic women and one Black man were killed; their identities have not been released but they were all reportedly known to Broderick. Separately, Wisconsin's Kenosha County Sheriff's Department apprehended and charged with first-degree homicide a "person of interest" in a shooting at a Kenosha tavern early Sunday morning that left at least three people dead and three hospitalized. There have been about 150 mass shootings in 2021.
