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.


After interviewing multiple witnesses, detectives have still not determined a motive or suspect for the shooting and are offering a $1,000 reward for any information that could lead to a suspect's arrest. Those with tips can remain anonymous.

Anyone with information, photo or video evidence that could help the case can call APD Homicide at 512-974-TIPS, email homicide.apd@austintexas.gov, call the Crime Stoppers tip line at 512-472-8477 (TIPS), or use the Crime Stoppers or Austin PD app.

Austin is now at 13 homicides for the year.
