According to our Austin affiliate KXAN, eight Austin police officers shot and killed a man early Friday morning in downtown Austin near Sixth Street.

Family identified the deceased as 21-year-old Aquantis Givens, a local Baton Rouge rapper.

Givens was shot multiple times outside an NBA Youngboy’s concert. Youngboy is another local Baton Rouge rapper.

“Tonight was a very, very dynamic situation which involved video footage from multiple cameras,” Assistant Chief Troy Gay said, adding that investigators are reviewing evidence from both public safety cameras and body cameras.

Ahead of the shooting, there had been multiple fights outside the NBA YoungBoy concert at the Terminal 6 club at 302 E. Sixth Street around 12:21 a.m., Gay said.

Because of the large crowd inside the club, officers called for backup and asked the Austin Fire Department to check the capacity around midnight. The Texas Alcohol Beverage Commission was also asked to come to the club.

Officers were already on alert about fights out front when shots were fired in a parking lot at the back of the club around 1 a.m. 

Police say at least two people with guns fired multiple times. Officers on Sixth Street and Trinity Street approached the alley when they heard gunshots and said a man ran toward them with a gun in his hand. Gay says officers gave him multiple commands.

“On one of these videos, the individual’s weapon points in the direction of these officers,” Gay said. “At that point, we had eight officers fire toward this individual and one officer fired a less lethal, which was a Taser.”

Officers performed CPR and Austin-Travis County EMS said they took Givens to the hospital with critical, life-threatening injuries.

Police say Givens was pronounced dead at 1:22 a.m. Police say they don’t have information that anyone else was hurt.

The officers who fired, including the one who fired a less-lethal weapon, are all on administrative leave per department policy. They have between one and six years of service with APD.

The area around Sixth Street and Trinity Street is blocked off. Sixth Street, Seventh Street and Eighth Street between San Jacinto Boulevard and Trinity Street are closed, as is Seventh Street and Brazos Street.
