Man shows up to a bar with a machete, but someone else had a gun, cops say

A man was shot to death outside a Billiards in Coral Springs early Sunday after police say he showed up with a machete.

According to Coral Springs police, the unidentified man was kicked out of the Premier Billiards & Sports Club — 9120 Wiles Road— at around 2 a.m. A few minutes later, he showed up with a machete and that’s when someone from outside the bar shot him.

“He brandished a machete and went after a group of people,” said Coral Springs spokesman Chris Swinson. “A subject that was there shot him.”

The victim was transported to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead. Police say the shooter is cooperating and a press conference is scheduled for Monday afternoon.
