Austin Police are searching for the suspect of a shooting that left 21-year old Jorian Donte Hardeway dead in downtown Austin early Sunday morning.

APD officers and Austin Travis County EMS found Hardeway with multiple gunshot wounds inside Club Swing on Seventh Street after receiving a 911 call at about 4:15 a.m. Sunday.

Once found, Hardeway was taken to a hospital before being pronounced dead at 4:42 a.m. An autopsy will be performed by the Travis County Medical Examiner to determine the official cause of death.
