Police were called to a Glen Avenue apartment after a woman said she saw a black male standing outside with a gun.
The complainant, who the responding officer described as intoxicated, claimed a man walked out of a nearby apartment with a shot gun and yelled that he would kill everyone if the police were called.
The officer spoke with the man accused of making the threat. According to the report, the man was “extremely intoxicated” and was at the apartment visiting “his baby’s mama.”
The man denied having any weapons and his “baby’s mama” likewise denied that there were any weapons in the apartment. The woman also said she had “no knowledge” of the man going outside and yelling.
The officer asked for consent to search the apartment for weapons, but his request was denied.
After speaking with the man, the officer tried to make contact with the woman who initially called police. The woman hung up on the dispatcher and refused to answer the phone when the 911 operator attempted to call her back.
