HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) – - A man accused of opening fire in a Hamilton bar is in the Butler County Jail after spending a night in the hospital.

Police say on Sunday around 2 p.m., they were called to Tailgator's Bar at 1079 Millville Ave for a disturbance call, and learned that 39-year-old Shawn Haynes entered the bar with a gun and fired one round in the direction of a person that he had previous problems with.
