Redlands CA Nov 8 2016 A man armed with a shotgun was shot by a security guard when the man tried to force his way back into a Redlands gentlemen’s club after being kicked out, officials said.
The unidentified 25-year-old San Bernardino man was taken to a hospital where he was last listed in stable condition, said Carl Baker, spokesman for the City of Redlands, in an email Monday morning.
Around 1 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 5, the 25-year-old was asked to leave Library Gentleman’s Club, 1331 W Colton Ave., after he was found drinking outside the club, Baker said.
The man allegedly went to his truck, pulled out a shotgun and walked back into the club saying he was “going to get the manager,” according to a Redlands Police Department Facebook post.
As a bouncer tried to calm the man, an employee alerted the armed uniformed security officer who came outside, where the 25-year-old now was, and ordered the San Bernardino man to drop his shotgun, officials said.
The man reportedly racked the shotgun and aimed it at the security officer who fired at the man hitting him once, officials said. The incident was captured on surveillance video.
Officials are waiting for the man to be released from the hospital to arrest and charge him, Baker said.
As of Monday, the security officer is not facing any charges, Baker said.
