1 stabbed to death at Austin fast food restaurant

The suspect jumped off the restaurant roof and was taken into custody.

One person is dead and another is hurt from a stabbing at an Austin, Texas, fast food restaurant Friday morning, police said.

The suspect was first involved in an altercation at a local coffee shop around 8 a.m. local time, Austin Police Sgt. David Daniels told reporters.

Customers intervened and detained the suspect, Daniels said, but when responders arrived, the suspect broke away and took off running toward a Freebirds World Burrito restaurant.

Two people at Freebirds were stabbed with a knife, including one fatally, Daniels said.

The suspect then left Freebirds, got on to the roof of restaurant and jumped off, Daniels said.

The suspect, a 27-year-old man, is now in custody, police said.

The suspect was injured from the jump but his condition was not immediately clear, said Daniels.

This is the city’s first homicide of the year, Daniels said.

“It’s just a tragic situation,” he added.
