A man allegedly pointed a gun at three people and fired a round into the air Wednesday night in the parking lot of EntertainMart, 651 N. Academy Blvd.

Colorado Springs Police was notified of the incident at 8:49 p.m.

The three victims were friends and had been shopping. As they were leaving the store, they told police they saw a man sitting in the passenger seat of a white Toyota sport-utility vehicle, who appeared to be watching them.

One of the victims asked the man what he was looking at. The man got out of the vehicle, ran at the victims, pointed a handgun at them, then fired a round into the air, according to police.

The suspect ran back to the SUV, while the victims got into their car and left the area. The suspect is described as a white male, 20-30 years old with a shaved head, and 5-feet-10-inches to 6-feet tall.
