Man accused of yelling anti-gay slur, pulling out gun in Minneapolis LGBTQ bar
A Minneapolis man is facing felony charges after allegedly pulling out a gun and threatening staff at an LGBTQ bar.

Hennepin County prosecutors say Conell Walter Harris, 29, entered the 19 Bar in Loring Park late Monday where staff and customers said he was "acting strangely,” according to court documents.

When an employee asked to see his ID, Harris became upset and a bartender asked him to leave.

Harris allegedly refused, pulled out a gun, and threatened staff members. A patron got between Harris and a bartender in an attempt to de-escalate the situation, police said in court documents.

Authorities say Harris yelled profanities at the staff — including an anti-gay slur — before stepping outside. He came back in and started playing pool just before officers arrived.

If you are in the Loring park area, you should not be anti gay and you should be armed.

I'd say he has more issues than being anti-gay.

Harris is charged with making violent threats and being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm. Federal prosecutors also charged Harris with illegal gun possession, and a judge ordered that he remain jailed.
I will never apologize for being an American.

Heck, if you're in the Loring Park area and you are gay, you should be armed.
