A 30-year-old Buffalo man faces several charges after police were called to a Niagara Street bar early Sunday for the report of a man with a gun.

Jose R. Santos, of Hinman Avenue, was arrested at about 2:30 a.m. inside Klub Karaoke, 2081 Niagara, according to a Buffalo Police report.

When Santos was approached by police inside the bar, he started pulling out the gun, according to the report. He was subsequently tackled by officers, after which he dropped the gun.

The .38-caliber revolver, which was loaded with three rounds, was reported stolen in November 2000, according to the report.

Police also found a folded-up dollar bill with cocaine in it in Santos’ pocket, the report said.

Santos was charged with second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property and seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.
