Police arrested a man early Friday after they said he fired shots into a crowded bar in Dormont in response to being thrown out with a friend.

Anthony Nania, 22, of Dormont, is charged with carrying a firearm without a license, four counts of aggravated assault and five misdemeanor counts of reckless endangerment. His friend, Charles Friedel, 21, of Brookline, is also charged with aggravated assault and reckless endangerment.

Dormont police Sgt. Ralf Zawischa said the two were drinking at the R Bar on West Liberty Avenue when staff threw them out about 11:45 p.m.

The pair returned to the bar about 20 or 25 minutes later with a gun, Sgt. Zawischa said.

Mr. Nania fired three shots through the front door of the bar, where about 20 patrons remained, Sgt. Zawischa said. Then the friends returned to Mr. Nania's house, where they were later arrested.

No one was hit, but a man and a woman were struck with broken glass. Both were treated at the scene and a friend drove the woman to a hospital.

Both men remained jail Thursday evening on $250,000 bond, according to court documents.
