Man held in shotgun incident

Police: He threatened 2 residents, officer

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        NEWPORT — A 26-year-old man who allegedly pointed a shotgun at two residents and a police officer was arrested Monday night after a brief scuffle in the hallway outside his Bluegrass Avenue apartment.

        Gregory Jackson, who lives in a second-floor apartment in the 200 block of Bluegrass, was charged with first-degree wanton endangerment, said Lt. Cy Sykes. No one was hurt during the nearly two-hour standoff.

        The incident began about 5:30 p.m. when two residents flagged down an officer and told him a man had pointed a shotgun at them out of his window, Lt. Sykes said. When the officer went to investigate, the suspect allegedly pointed the weapon at him. The department's SWAT unit was called out about 6 p.m., and members entered the building about 7:15 p.m and were confronted by the suspect, Lt. Sykes said. The suspect was subdued after a brief scuffle.

        No shots were fired, Lt. Sykes said.
