There appear to be both businesses and residences in that area, according to a Google maps search of the general area.

Mike and Sherri Shutter said they were selling wooden signs on Old Settlers Blvd when they heard 10-20 gunshots near the Behrens Ranch neighborhood, across from Round Rock Fire Station No. 9.

The Shutters said it sounded “like fireworks” and the gunshots were “high-speed fire.”

KXAN crews on the scene say Round Rock police vehicles have been driving through neighborhoods in the area and something appears to be a police helicopter flying over the scene. SWAT vehicles have also arrived, our crews reported.

This is a story in development and will be updated.
