AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin Police has released a description of the suspect in a shooting that injured two people outside a Sixth Street club early New Year’s Day.

APD is looking for a person that matches this description:

  • Black male
  • Mid-20s to mid-30s
  • Between 5 feet, 7 inches and 6 feet tall
  • 160-180 pounds
  • Long, black dreadlocks
  • Trimmed beard
  • Last seen wearing a multi-colored, long sleeve shirt

Anyone with any information should call the APD Aggravated Assault unit at 512-974-5245.

The owner of Terminal 6, Saveou Nasareddin, said the club is closed permanently.

Austin-Travis County EMS reported via Twitter “multiple gunshot wound patients” just after 1 a.m. on Jan. 1.

Moments later, emergency crews identified the two shot as a man and a woman. ATCEMS said both had “serious but not expected to be life-threatening injuries.”

APD says both victims were adults but in their late-teens.

Police confirmed the woman was an innocent bystander who was caught in the gunfire. They could not say whether the male victim was associated with the suspect or not.

Austin Police watch command stated someone shot the two at the Terminal 6 bar on east Sixth Street near the intersection of San Jacinto Boulevard. No one is in custody at this time. The incident was not an active shooter scene, per APD.

There have been two shootings near the Terminal 6 bar in the past few years. In July two people were sent to the hospital a little before 2 a.m. when the bars closed after a disturbance. In August 2018, the area around Terminal 6 was the scene of fights and an officer-involved shooting following a concert at the bar.
