(DPS) — On Wednesday, April 22, 2020, at about 4:51 p.m., the Department of Public Safety received a 911 call reporting that an individual had pointed a gun in Chinatown. Police units were dispatched to the scene.

The first units to arrive on the scene met with witnesses. Witnesses told police that a male individual pointed a gun toward them before walking away from the scene with two unknown adults. Police shared the description of the three suspects to other units in the area. Shortly after, three individuals matching the description were apprehended outside a neighboring apartment.

Police spoke with the victims who stated that they were having a conversation when they noticed a passing tenant who was intoxicated. One of the victims told the tenant that he looked drunk. The suspect then asked the victims to repeat what he had said. The victim repeated what was said, before the suspect pointed a black gun at them. The victims immediately took cover and hid until police arrived.

Police identified Anthony C. Rangamar as the suspect and found a black pellet gun on his person.

At about 5:59 p.m., Rangamar was arrested and transported to the Department of Corrections where he was booked and detained.

DPS highly encourages the public to call 911 anytime to report a crime or an emergency. Police officers are here to help you.
