Hartford, Conn. (CBS Connecticut/AP) – Hartford police have charged a city man with firing a gun inside a North End bar that is now closed after multiple shootings and stabbings in recent months.
Thirty-five-year-old Johnny Lawrence was arrested Wednesday on charges including unlawful discharge of a firearm, carrying a pistol without a permit and reckless endangerment.
He’s detained on $300,000 bail.
It’s not clear if he has a lawyer.
No one was injured in the March 14 shooting inside the Cleveland Cafe.
Police say they found nine spent shell casings in a bar area and in the floor.
Authorities believe the shooting spurred from a fight between two women.
Officials say workers at the bar never reported the shooting to police.
Police say the bar has closed at the owner’s discretion.
Earlier this month, 24-year-old Bobby Fair was arrested for allegedly opening fire in the club.
A patron suffered a wound to the arm in that incident.
