PUEBLO — A trio of roommates in Pueblo were apparently a little too loud for a fourth roommate overnight, causing a disturbance. But Pueblo Police say the man who wanted a little quiet went too far in telling his roommates to quiet down.

Officers got the call before 3 a.m. Friday to the Wolf Village Pueblo student apartments next to CSU-Pueblo. Three roommates said the fourth man became upset over their late night noise and sparked an argument, according to police.

Things were fine up to that point, based on the details from the officers, as the man went back to his room and closed the door. When the roommates decided to knock on his door and apologize, they told police they heard a rifle being cocked and a threat to "blast them" if they didn't stop.

Police officers on the scene were able to convince the roommate to come out without further problems. The man, who's name has not been released, is charged with felony menacing.

According to Pueblo Police, the suspect tried to explain he only had one bullet in the rifle and "there were 3 of them." A tweet from the on-duty Captain states, "Sgt. Antoinette Ramos explained to him that the number of rounds in the gun wasn't the issue."
