FORT MYERS,Fla. -- Two Fort Myers men behind bars on gun charges after police prevented a potential nightclub shooting over the weekend.
19-year-old Jevontae Williams and 18-year-old Keeron Jones are both being held in jail on concealed weapons charges.
Police say they were patrolling the parking lot of the Vegas Lounge on Colonial Boulevard around 1:30 a.m. on Saturday. That's when they noticed Jones armed with a pistol. They also reportedly saw Williams grab an AK-47-style assault rifle from a trunk.
Both men reportedly tried to hide their guns and walk away when officers approached them.
Both guns were loaded at the time.
Williams was charged with carrying a concealed firearm and carrying weapon openly. Jones was charged with carrying a concealed firearm and providing a false name to law enforcement.
Over the past few months, police have responded to several fights, assaults and shootings in the same parking lot.
