BURNET, Texas (AP) -

Two people have been shot and two others arrested following gunfire in a Central Texas town that left police investigating two crime scenes.

Burnet Police Chief Paul Nelson said Monday that one victim was transported to a Round Rock hospital and faced surgery. Nelson says the other injured person was treated and released from a hospital in Burnet, a town of about 6,000 located 50 miles northwest of Austin.

Police on Sunday night responded to reports of gunfire at an apartment complex and also near a hotel. Police believe the shootings are related.

Investigators said two men were detained on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Police said one of the wounded individuals could also face charges.

Police did not immediately provide additional details Monday.
