Man arrested, charged with threatening Funky Murphy's staff with gun

WORCESTER — A Marlborough man was arrested early morning Sunday, after he allegedly threatened staff at a city bar with a gun when they refused him entry.

Daniel Mercado, 23, was arrested and charged on two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, two counts of threatening to commit murder, as well as a count of improper storage of a firearm, according to Worcester police.

Around 1:25 a.m. Sunday, police responded to a report that a man had threatened staff at Funky Murphy's on 305 Shrewsbury St. after being denied entry.

Witnesses told police that the bar was closing for the night when staff denied entry to two men. One of the men began aggressively arguing with staff and refused to leave, requiring staff to escort him out.

Witnesses said that the man threatened to shoot staff on the way out and appeared to brandish a black handgun. Police were given a description of Mercado and his vehicle.

An officer identified Mercado's car on Shrewsbury Street and a small black firearm fell out of his pants while being searched, according to the Worcester police.

Mercado was arrested on two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, two counts of threatening to commit murder as well as a count of improper storage of a firearm.

Two other firearms-related reports occurred early morning Sunday, police said.

A gunshot victim turned up at an area hospital at 2:15 a.m. with non-life-threatening injuries. As of Sunday afternoon, police had not yet located a crime scene tied to the shooting victim.

Police also received a report of shots fired on East Mountain Street around 6:30 a.m.

A vehicle windshield was struck, but no injuries were reported.

The gunshots are under investigation.
