AUSTIN (Talk1370.com) -- Police are investigating after a person was killed on the city's north side Wednesday afternoon, officials said.

Austin-Travis County EMS first reported a possible auto-pedestrian crash just after 1 p.m. in the 1200 block of Kramer Lane, near Braker.

According to Austin Police, however, the male victim was not struck by a vehicle, but by some other object that caused blunt force trauma to the victim's head.

Officer Demetri Hobbs said witnesses saw a car speeding off from the scene, which is what created the confusion over a potential auto-pedestrian crash.

Hobbs said investigators are scouring the scene for additional evidence that may help in the ongoing investigation. Anyone with information is urged to call the department.
