A man who reportedly pulled a replica or toy gun on a Brookhaven nightclub employee was shot early Sunday morning after an altercation.
A male, described as Hispanic, became intoxicated and at one point fell to the ground. â€œSome sort of dispute began as the manager and security guard attempted to help the patron up,â€ said Maj. Brandon Gurley. â€œEventually, the male subject was heard saying that he â€˜had somethingâ€™ for the employees as he exited the business.â€
A short time later, the man was seen walking toward the business holding a pistol in his hand.
â€œAn employee retrieved their own handgun and confronted the patron as he opened the front door warning him not to continue,â€ Gurley said. â€œThe employee fired several rounds at the armed person, causing the armed person to retreat and leave the scene in a white truck.â€
