(ABC 6 NEWS) -- No one was hurt when a gunshot was fired during an armed robbery at an Austin bar.
It happened at the Hiawatha Bar on Austin's east side.
Witnesses said a man had been sitting at the bar for about an hour Friday night when he got up and went behind the bar. A bartender asked what he was doing, and the man said he was robbing the place.
Police say he pulled a handgun and fired a shot in the general direction of a customer.
The gunman ordered everyone in the bar to lay on the floor, then he and a female companion fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.
The man was described as a light-skinned black man with possible acne scars, between 5'8" and 5'11", 160 to 175 pounds.
Witnesses estimated his age anywhere from the mid 20's to the mid 40's.
