AUSTIN, Texas-- Austin Police are investigating a shooting that left one dead and two others injured Sunday morning.

The Austin Police Department says someone fired shots into the glass windows of Paris Hookah Lounge on Rutland Drive around 5:30 a.m.

A reward of $1,000 is being offered for information leading to an arrest.

Sunday night, stage lights still beamed across the room where one of the bullets struck 18-year-old Louis Alberto in the head.

"It's really hard for me," his father, Inaudis Rodriguez said. "My son was a happy kid, happy boy."

Rodriguez says Alberto, his only son, is now on life-support at Dell Seton Medical Center in Austin.

"I don't have words right now to express my pain right now on how I feel," Rodriguez said.

He says his son had gone to the lounge to dance -- something he's always loved to do.

Rodriguez says doctors told him Alberto wouldn't have more than day to live. Now, he's focused on trying to find a way to get his mother, who lives in Cuba, to the U.S. to see him one final time.

"This is really hard for her, I've talked to her two times, three times today, and I can't explain how she feels," Rodriguez said.

No arrests have been made.

APD is asking anyone with information on this case to give them a call.

This is a developing story.
