AUSTIN (KXAN) — Police are investigating a shooting at a Central Austin strip club late Saturday night.
The shooting happened at 11:28 p.m. at the Yellow Rose Nightclub off North Lamar Boulevard. Austin-Travis County EMS says a man in his 30s was taken to UMC Brackenridge in critical condition.
The owner of the club tells KXAN News that a Yellow Rose security guard shot a man who tried to rob another man in the nightclub parking lot.
“The member of the YR [Yellow Rose] Security team fired one shot to his head preventing the robber from shooting our Yellow Security team and saved their lives,” said Yellow Rose owners in a statement to KXAN. The owners go on to say the person who fired the shot did have a permit to carry.
APD says no charges will be filed against the security guard.
