TRAVIS COUNTY, Texas -- Two people were killed in a shooting near Lake Travis Wednesday night and one woman was transported to the hospital in critical condition, according to the Travis County Sheriff's Office. 

The shooting happened around 7:40 p.m. in the 2000 block of Whitebead Trail, TCSO said. 

Mike Benavides with Austin-Travis County EMS said that multiple units responded and found a woman estimated to be in her 40s and a man estimated to be in his 50s both dead at the scene. 

STAR Flight transported a woman estimated to be in her 40s to University Medical Center Brackenridge in critical, life-threatening condition, Benavides said. 

A neighbor told KVUE's Jason Puckett they heard arguing followed by several gunshots.
