LUBBOCK, Texas – A man was arrested early Monday morning after showing up at a Lubbock bar with a gun and threatening to shoot employees inside, according to a police report.

Police were called to CC’s Bar & Grill, 1605 50th Street, over civil unrest just before 2:00 a.m.

A witness told police Desmond Lamont Taylor was at the bar and accused staff of stealing his wallet, according to the police report. He then left and returned with a handgun shortly thereafter.

Taylor knocked on the bar door and asked to enter. He said he would shoot bar workers if he was not allowed in, according to the report.

While the police spoke with the victims, Taylor returned to the bar in a car driven by another person.
