Two Syracuse men have been arrested after allegedly threatening to shoot up a bar.

The Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office reports deputies responded to a disturbance call at the Bourbon Street Bar, located at 402 Old Liverpool Road, just after 12:30 a.m. Sunday. 

Deputies say the two men began arguing with security staff and left the bar prior to their arrival. Before the two men left the bar, they had threatened staff that they would return to shoot the place up. 

A description of the men and the vehicle they were seen leaving in was then obtained and relayed to area law enforcement.

While deputies remained in the area of the bar, they observed the vehicle had returned. When they approached the vehicle, two men exited the car. They say one was quickly apprehended while the other took off running with what appeared to be a handgun in his waistband. 

After a short foot pursuit and struggle, deputies took the second man into custody and recovered a 9mm handgun, which was located nearby. 

Both 20-year-old Kaveece Fulwiley and 20-year-old Erick Hernandez-Ortiz were charged with making a terroristic threat. Hernandez-Ortiz was also charged with criminal possession of a weapon and resisting arrest. 

The pair are expected to be arraigned Sunday morning in Centralized Arraignment Court.
