The Burnet County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) Criminal Investigation Division is welcoming information about the Thursday night road rage incident on Ranch to Market Road 1431 in which an Austin Police Department (APD) rescued family and wounded their assailant.

Burnet County Sheriff Calvin Boyd said the incident appears to have stemmed from a road-rage situation which occurred in the 1200 block of RM 1431 west of RM 1174 and about eight miles east of Marble Falls at around 10 p.m. Thursday.

“At 10:11 PM, the Burnet County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call regarding shots fired involving an off-duty Austin Police Department officer,” said a press release from Boyd Friday morning.

As the yet-unidentified officer was traveling home, he came upon a man exiting a red Camero and pointing a gun at another vehicle, occupied by a family of three.
