SALT LAKE CITY — A man was arrested Wednesday after allegedly pointing a realistic-looking air gun at people and cars in Salt Lake City.
Police dispatched officers to the area near 400 South State Street around 11:30 a.m. after receiving information about a man with a gun. When officers arrived, they found the man near the City and County building.
Seeing a weapon in the man's waistband, an officer "with a less lethal shotgun arrived on scene and deployed less lethal rounds at the suspect," police report.
Officers were able to secure the weapon and identified it as an air gun.
The 44-year-old man was taken into custody and transported to the hospital with minor injuries.
