Boise Police investigators are looking for a suspect who pointed a gun at another man late Sunday night.

Around 11 p.m., a man was acting suspiciously in a parking lot near Orchard Street and Overland Road.  

“A man in the area approached the suspect to check on him. When the suspect began to yell at the man, the (second) man started recording the suspect with his cell phone,” according to a Boise Police Department news release.

During that time, the suspect pulled a handgun from his shirt and pointed it at the victim, the release said.

No details were available as to what happened thereafter.

Anyone with information about the identity of the suspect is asked to call dispatch 208-377-6790 or Crime Stoppers: at 208-343-COPS (2677),, or leave a tip using the “P3 Tips” app for your mobile device.
