30-year-old Connor Anderson was with a woman at the Smiles Nite Club in Palm Coast, Florida. Anderson suddenly became irate because he couldn’t find his car keys, so he went out of the bar for a while. When he returned, Anderson was armed with a 9mm Glock handgun. He then placed the woman in a headlock and pointed the gun to her head, believing that the woman had his keys. A few customers have tried to stop him, but not without Anderson firing the gun six times at several people. Thankfully, no injuries have occurred, and other customers did successfully tackle Anderson to the ground.
After the shooting, Connor Anderson ran out to the woods. He was later found at a nearby parking area by police, where he was arrested. Meanwhile, Anderson’s pickup has been seized and forfeited by authorities. Anderson now faces six counts of shooting into or throwing deadly missiles, three counts of aggravated assault, battery, using a firearm under the influence of alcohol, and improper exhibition of dangerous weapons or firearms. He is now held inside the “Green Roof Inn” on a $542,000 bond.
"It is amazing this dirtbag did not kill or seriously injure anyone during his moment of rage over something as small as his car keys. Violence is never the answer and alcohol and guns never mix well," said Sheriff Rick Staly. "Anderson will be learning that the hard way as he sits in jail at the Green Roof Inn. I also commend the patrons that intervened and immediately called us. Putting themselves in danger in this case saved many lives."
