Florida Man Upset Over Losing His Car Keys Puts Gun To Woman’s Head and Shoots Up Bar

Florida man Conner Anderson, 30, of Palm Coast, is in the Flagler County Jail after he became upset over losing his car keys, held a gun to a woman’s head, and fired shots inside a Palm Coast bar.

Flagler County deputies responded to the Smiles Nite Club located at 9 Palm Harbor Village Way around midnight on Sunday after receiving several 911 calls about a shooting inside the bar.

When they arrived, law enforcement found the suspect, 30-year-old Connor Anderson, in a nearby parking lot, armed with a 9mm Glock handgun.

Witnesses stated that Conner was seen talking with a woman at the bar. He became upset that he could not find his car keys. So, naturally Anderson left the bar and returned with a Glock 9mm pistol. He put the woman in a headlock and placed the gun to the head of the woman he was with.

When the other customers tried to intervene, Anderson started busting caps and fired his pistol six times in the direction of bar patrons. More patrons joined in and took Anderson to the ground, and then Anderson pulled away and fled the bar. Luckily, no one in the bar was shot or injured.

“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.”

Anderson was taken into custody without further incident and charged with 6 counts of shooting into or throwing deadly missiles, 3 counts of aggravated assault, battery, using a firearm while under the influence of alcoholic beverages, and improper exhibition of dangerous weapons or firearms.

Anderson was booked into the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility and is being held on a $542,000 bond.
