A juvenile girl has been charged with murder in connection with the death of a 59-year-old man in southwest Austin, according to the Austin Police Department.
Around 4:33 am, the APD answered a gunshot call at Block 3800 from Alexandria Road near Brody Lane. Once at the scene, authorities found David Dunn with great trauma and a gunshot wound. Dunne died at the scene of the accident around 5 am.
APD reports that Dunn collapsed in the street after being shot. Then the little girl got into Dan’s carriage, announced her intention to run over him, and then she intentionally did so.
Police said crime scene investigators and specialists were able to recover the video from the scene, which includes “extensive footage of the event” and identification of the persons concerned.
The killing was identified as the method of death by the Travis County Medical Examination Office.
The cause of the man’s death is a gunshot wound with a contributing factor to the severe shock of run over the car, APD says.
Originally accused of aggravated assault, the girl’s charges were improved after the official ruling from the medical examiner’s office. The girl is currently held at Gardner Betts Juvenile.
