Police say a 19-year-old man and 15-year-old boy were in a car at a drive-thru at 3:30 p.m. on May 31 when a 45-year-old man in the car behind them honked his horn.

The teens allegedly began yelling at and threatening the man. All three got out of their cars and the 19-year-old is alleged to have pulled out and pointed a firearm at the 45-year-old man.

Police were called and they located the suspects and their vehicle nearby. Ammunition and a replica firearm were found.
