In the wake of the Orlando massacre that killed 49 patrons of the gay nightclub Pulse, there have already been a handful of incidents in which copycats have evoked the crime or threatened to follow in shooter Omar Mateen’s footsteps. San Diego police are investigating a Craigslist ad promising an Orlando-inspired attack; a drunken patron promised to come back to Brooklyn bar Happy Fun Hideaway to “take his fifty, Orlando-style“; and an Atlanta man’s Twitter account vowed to turn two local bars into “the next Orlando.”

Now, police are investigating an incident at a British gay bar that was apparently “shot at” on Sunday night.

According to Gay Star News, a road was closed earlier this week as police investigated the Limes bar in Canterbury, Kent. Social media lit up with witnesses and bar patrons claiming the windows of the Limes Lounge were “shot out” around 10pm on Sunday, although police have yet to confirm these reports.

According to KentOnline, Sally Smith of Kent Police said, “No injuries were reported and the investigation into the incident continues. A window was broken and the cause of the damage remains under investigation. No weapons were reported to have been seen.”
