Austin police note upturn in random gang violence

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Police in Austin are becoming increasingly
concerned about random gang violence in the city.
Police say several recent violent acts are linked to gang
members, including the fatal beating of a 75-year-old woman. She
died Wednesday from injuries sustained in a January attack outside
a Taco Bell.
The woman's death followed a series of weekend drive-by
shootings. A man survived being shot in the neck during one of the
attacks.
Unlike the typical gang-against-gang violence, Austin Police
Commander Chris Noble tells the Austin American-Statesman that the
recent string of crimes is "just complete random violence."
