A suspect is in custody following a domestic disturbance in northwest Austin Thursday morning where he allegedly brandished a gun.
Austin Police Lt. John Mueller reported that Austin Police, along with deputies from the Mower County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a male party with a gun threatening another subject in the backyard of a home in the 500 block of 5th Avenue Northwest just after 10:00 a.m. Thursday morning.
Before law enforcement arrived, a report came in that both subjects went back into the house. When law enforcement arrived, a perimeter was established. Mueller stated that three adult males were later taken into custody at gunpoint while a juvenile was escorted from the home by an officer.
Lt. Mueller stated that two of the three males taken into custody were released at the scene. The third was arrested and was taken to Mower County jail to await charges.
