Patrons of a Florida bar have been hailed for their bravery after attacking a man who held a gun to a woman’s head and opened fire as he got angry at the missing car keys, authorities said.

Connor Anderson was inside the Smiles Nite Club in Palm Coast with a woman on Sunday night when witnesses said he was unable to find his car keys and ‘got upset’, according to the county sheriff’s office by Flagler.

Anderson left the bar and returned with a gun, putting the woman in a headache and holding the gun to her head, deputies said.

Patrons intervened and tried to disarm Anderson as he fired around six times at several patrons inside the bar, authorities said. Patrons were able to tackle Anderson to the ground before he fled the bar.

Responding deputies said they found Anderson in a nearby parking lot still armed with a 9mm Glock handgun. He was taken into custody without incident and arrested.

No injuries were reported in the incident.

“It’s amazing that this filthy bag didn’t kill or seriously injure anyone during his moment of rage over something as small as his car keys,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “Violence is never the answer and alcohol and guns never mix.”
