Man arrested after threatening police with shotgun

Police arrested a man Saturday after he allegedly threatened police with a shotgun.



Authorities responded to the Water Wheel Apartments shortly after 8 a.m. when a call came in about a man with a gun making suicidal threats.



When police knocked on the door they say they heard what sounded like a shotgun being loaded.



Officers took cover as the suspect, identified as 24-year-old Andrew Halter, came outside and pointed a loaded gun at an officer.



After being challenged by other officers, Halter surrendered and was arrested.



Neighbors say Halter is a relatively nice young man and that they are happy no one was hurt in the incident.



Halter is now facing multiple felony charges, including menacing a police officer.



He is being held at the Orange County jail and is due in court Thursday.
