Ferguson Township police launched an investigation Tuesday into a report of a man with a gun.
Officers responded to the report at 6:19 p.m. at the intersection of West Beaver Ave and South Osmond Street.
“An unknown male got into an argument with a bicyclist and pointed a gun at him during the argument,” a release said. “The male then fled in the direction of the Corl Street Elementary School.”
“The suspect and bicyclist exchanged words,” Ferguson Township Police Chief Chris Albright said. “They did not know each other. At this point, we don’t know why the man pulled a gun.”
