A security officer taking a break from work encountered a man walking in a parking garage who said he was looking for his probation officer and then displayed a gun in his waistband to the security officer. The security officer was concerned by this display and called police to provide a description of the man and his behavior.
Officers searched the blocks and found the man with the gun near Southwest 5th Avenue and Southwest Alder Street. The man was known to officers and quickly admitted he was carrying a replica firearm, which officers safely removed from him (photo).
