Man shot at El Agazajo Bar overnight

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin police are investigating a shooting at a bar near the airport. It happened at just after midnight at El Agazajo Bar and Grill on U.S. Highway 183, just south of State Highway 71. One man was shot and taken to a hospital. He is expected to survive.

This is the same bar where a security guard, 28-year-old Richard Escalante, was shot and killed last October. We last checked on that case in February, and police had not found a suspect at that point. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
