Police are investigating a Downtown Austin crime after two men were found with gunshot wounds in the early hours on Thursday.


The Austin Police Department received a call that a gunshot-wounded man had been pushed out of a dark sedan around 1 a.m. near the Highland Lounge on Fourth and Colorado Streets.

When police arrived on the scene, two men who had been pushed out of the car were found with gunshot wounds and were transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. No suspect is in custody as of Thursday morning.

While police said they are not sure where the men were shot, they did confirm that it did not take place inside an LGBTQ+ club in the area and there is no indication it was a hate crime.

This is a developing story.
