A former Texas sheriff’s detective suspected of gunning down three people in Austin was captured on Monday walking along a rural road, police said.
Stephen Broderick, 41, was spotted in the 12300 block of Old Kimbro Road in Manor at about 7:30 a.m. CST before he surrendered to responding city police officers and Travis County Sheriff’s deputies, Chief Ryan Phipps said.
“He was armed with a pistol on his waistband but he didn’t resist,” Phipps told NBC News. “He was fully compliant with our officers’ commands.”
Broderick is suspected of fatally shooting two women and a man on Sunday.
He is a former Travis County sheriff’s detective who was charged with sexual assault of a child in June, NBC affiliate KXAN of Austin reported.
