AUSTIN - A man suspected of opening fire during an argument on Austin's popular Sixth Street has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Travis County jail records show 19-year-old Paul Lenorris Whitley was being held Tuesday with bond set at $80,000. Online jail records don't list an attorney for Whitley, who was arrested following the gunfire early Sunday as the bars were closing.

Police are trying to determine what sparked the shootings that left a man and a woman hurt. Their names and further details on their recovery weren't immediately available.

Investigators do not believe Whitley knew the victims.
