Two men pointed guns at other drivers, including an El Paso County deputy, near downtown early Monday, Colorado Springs police said.

Police received multiple calls about 7:50 a.m. that two men with guns were walking near Wahsatch and Colorado avenues and pointing their firearms at passing cars. 

One of the men pointed a gun at the first responding deputy, police spokesman Lt. James Sokolik said. 

Jason Rios, 18, and Jacob Collins, 20, were arrested on suspicion of felony menacing. Sokolik did not say which man pointed his gun at the deputy.

Police and sheriff's deputies responded and resolved the situation in "a joint effort," Sokolik said.
