A local artist was shot during an armed robbery after he performed at SXSW festival, it has been reported.
Michael Sanders, a guitarist for the band Löwin, was confronted by three masked assailants who had been hiding in bushes near his home, the Austin Chronicle reports.
During the attack, Sanders was shot in the shoulder and his wallet and phone were stolen.
He is expected to make a full recovery, but is now unable to perform with the band during their three scheduled gigs at the annual festival in Austin, Texas this week.
Löwin posted a photo of Sanders at home recovering on their official Facebook
