Austin Police say two separate shooting incidents that took place within the same downtown area are currently contained.

The police department alerted people of an "active shooter incident" with "multiple victims" in a tweet early Sunday, and instructed people to stay away from the area.

Local paramedics say one female has died on the scene, and they're responding to at least four others injured, one of whom they say refused to go to hospital.

Adam Summers used to trade Snickers bars to get free CT scans of dead fish.

He likes fish. A lot.

Summers is a professor at the University of Washington in the biology department and School of Aquatic and Fisheries Sciences.

"I've always been a fish guy," he says. "It's just been in my blood since I was as small as I can remember." Summers was a scientific consultant on Finding Nemo and did similar work with Finding Dory.
