Austin Police are investigating a suspicious death on Redwater Dr. and Manchaca Rd.

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin police are investigating a fight that ended with one person dead Monday night in South Austin near Manchaca Road and Redwater Drive, just south of Slaughter Lane. APD says officers responded to a disturbance call just after 9 p.m. Monday in the 1800 block of Redwater Drive. They found two men who had apparently been fighting. One of the men needed medical attention, so officers called EMS. The man was taken to an area hospital, where he died.

Police do not know yet what caused the man’s death. Homicide detectives are interviewing witnesses. Meanwhile, the second man involved is at APD Headquarters waiting to talk to detectives. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
