Man with gun arrested after threatening to shoot officers Sunday

DAYTON — One man was arrested after Dayton police had to call for backup Sunday afternoon.

Dayton police officers were originally called to a house in the 100 block of Santa Clara Avenue on a peace officer call, according to Dayton Police Department Information Specialist James Rider.

A man claimed to have a gun and threatened to shoot police officers, which prompted Dayton crews to issue a “99″ or a call for countywide assistance.

The “99″ was quickly canceled, according to initial emergency scanner traffic.

At least one man was arrested, Rider said.

News Center 7 is working to learn the identity of that person and any others who may have been arrested in connection.

The house was reportedly abandoned.
