The Austin Police Department is investigating a shooting that occurred early Wednesday morning at Teller's Bar in downtown Austin that left one injured.
At around 2:15 a.m. police responded to a call about a disturbance at Teller's Bar, on Trinity Street between Sixth and Seventh streets. Two suspects were denied entry into the bar and, in response, displayed a handgun and threatened bar employees and patrons, according to APD. The two suspects then left after a third man, who had driven them there, was arrested on unrelated charges.
Just before 5 a.m., the two suspects returned to Teller's in a white Chevrolet Trailblazer. One of them left the car and fired multiple shots into a nearby car that belonged to a bar employee, as shown in the above video. A woman asleep inside the car was hit and transported to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
This was an unprovoked attack, according to APD, and the department is asking anyone with information about the incident to call their tip line at 512-472-8477. Information leading to an arrest may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
The shooting was another in a series of recent violent crimes in downtown Austin. APD responded to a report of a stabbing incident near East Sixth and Neches streets on Monday afternoon and arrested a suspect following a deadly shooting at Swing Hookah Lounge, on East Seventh Street, early Sunday morning.
APD previously asked for the community's help identifying a suspect involved in an aggravated assault at Teller's Bar on Feb. 6, in which a victim was cut.
