Former Sheriff’s Detective Suspected Of Gunning Down 3 People In Texas Has Been Captured

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 females and a male a lit­tle before 11:42 a.m. Sunday at the Arboretum Oaks Apartments in Austin, about 18 miles from where the sus­pect was caught on Monday.
Police had received two calls that a man, believed to be Broderick, was walk­ing along Old Kimbro Road, a rur­al path just off U.S. Route 290, Phipps said.
The sus­pect has been booked into Travis County Jail in down­town Austin, the chief added.
Broderick 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.
Interim Austin Police Chief Joseph Chacon on Sunday called the triple killing a “domes­tic incident.”
“The vic­tims were all known to our sus­pect,” Chacon added. “And so at this point, we do not think that this indi­vid­ual is out tar­get­ing ran­dom peo­ple to shoot them.”
Elgin High School stu­dents Willie Simmons III and Alyssa Broderick were two of the peo­ple killed on Sunday, dis­trict Assistant Superintendent Al A. Rodriguez said Monday.(NBC NEWS REPORTS)
