Police identified the suspect as Trenton Carpec, age 23.

According to the police report, officers found Carpec at a home in Sharon, where he was arrested.

Police said Carpec admitted that he had been kicked out of Laddie’s after he said he made a comment that upset the bartender. He said he told the bartender that he would fight him and denied making reference to a gun but later admitted that he said he would be back to “put a hole in him,” according to the report.

Carpec denied having a gun and police were unable to find one during a search of the Sharon home. Police noted in their report that Sharon police were not given consent to search the upstairs bedrooms of the home.
