AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Investigators are keeping a lid on new information on the shooting of a Texas state judge outside her Austin home.

The Austin Police Department said in a tweet Sunday that no new details on the shooting would be provided on the shooting of state District Judge Julie Kocurek.

She was shot Friday night upon returning to her home in the posh Tarrytown neighborhood west of downtown Austin.

The shooting prompted a large manhunt, but as of Sunday no arrests had been made.

Police said Kocurek was taken to a hospital in stable condition. Her injuries are not considered to be life-threatening.

Kocurek, a former prosecutor, was appointed to the court by then-Gov. George W. Bush and has been Travis County’s presiding felony judge since 1999.
