Police investigators in Austin say a 19-year-old man has confessed to the shooting death of a woman and injuring three others in a series of robbery attempts that began Christmas Day.
Police Lt. Jason Staniszewski said Friday that Xavier Lewis was wearing an ankle monitor due to a prior aggravated robbery charge, and it implicated him in the latest crimes.
Authorities say Lewis, who was arrested Thursday, robbed four people on Christmas Day and shot two of them. They say he later took a woman's car and then struck a person with it.
Staniszewski says 30-year-old Ebony Michelle Sheppard was shot Tuesday in an apparent robbery attempt. She later died at a hospital.
