Men get kicked out of bar for fighting, return with gun, machete, investigators say

Two men who were kicked out of a Florida bar for fighting returned twice, the second time with a gun and a machete, investigators said.

The men returned to La Caravane Restaurant in Deerfield Beach around 3:38 a.m. Dec. 22 with one man pulling a gun from his waistband as he tried to open the front door, video shows.

He shoots the door when he finds that he is unable to open it. Another man stands by holding a machete. There were about 10 people inside during the shooting. No one was injured by the gunshots, deputies said.

The men, who investigators believe are brothers, were first kicked out for fighting with people in the restaurant. They returned, threw a chair at a security guard and were subsequently kicked out again, investigators said. The security guard was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The next time they returned armed. They left in a white Toyota pickup.
