Group says armed man threatened them

A group of four people who were yelling at others from the top of a downtown Rochester parking ramp were allegedly confronted by a man with a gun Monday night, according to police.

The group of two men and two women, who ranged in age from 18 to 27, were yelling from the top of a parking ramp in the 100 block of First Avenue Southeast around 11 p.m. when a man pulled up in a white, four-door car, got out and told them to stop yelling, according to Capt. Brian Winters.

Someone in the group told the man to leave, and he went back to his car and pulled out what appeared to be a handgun, Winters said. The man did not point the gun at the group of people, Winters said, but he made threatening comments like "do you want some of this?"

No one was harmed, Winters said. No one in the group would tell police what they were yelling from the top of the parking ramp, he said, and it isn't clear if the group had yelled at the man with the gun before the confrontation.

The man who allegedly had the gun was described as 6 feet tall, 150 pounds, in his mid-20s, wearing a black leather jacket and blue jeans, Winters said.
