PORTLAND, Oregon - This morning at 12:27 a.m., police conducted a walk-through at the Shamrock Bar, located at 4919 Southeast 82nd Avenue, after reports of an earlier fight where a subject may have had a gun.

Officers noticed a man acting very nervous in the bar so they contacted him and found a loaded handgun in his pants pocket.

The man, 33-year-old Rontonio Augustus, was arrested and booked into the Multnomah County Jail on charges of Felon in Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm and Possession of a Firearm. Additionally, Augustus was held on a parole violation on an original charge of Attempted Murder. He will be arraigned on Monday.

Police say the handgun was stolen in a car prowl.
