PUEBLO — Around 11:30 p.m. Friday night, multiple Pueblo Police officers responded the McDonald's in Belmont after a teen girl reported that the driver of a car had pointed a gun at her.

According to Pueblo PD, the girl got the car's plate number and when officers arrived, they found the car still in the parking lot of the McDonald's.

Pueblo PD said the suspect and two passengers were eating their food when officers arrived and ordered them out of the vehicle.

Inside the car, officers found a "very realistic looking air soft pistol."

PD said the victim ID'd the 18-year-old suspect and he was taken into custody. He also had a no-bond, felony warrant.

According to Pueblo PD, because the weapon was perceived by the victim to be an actual firearm and put her in a position of fear, the offense qualifies as Felony Menacing.

The passengers in the vehicle were not implicated in the alleged crime and were released, PD said.
