Boise Police officers respond to a report of a man with a gun

Suspect: Alex Guerrero, 25, Boise

Charge: Exhibition of a deadly weapon (m)

Just before 8:00 p.m. Boise Police were called to a report of a man with a gun on S. La Point Street. Witnesses say the suspect was in an argument with someone across the street when the suspect displayed a firearm.  When officers arrived on scene they were able to find the suspect, identified as Alex Guerrero, and the firearm.  After further investigation the suspect was taken into custody and charged with a misdemeanor for exhibiting a deadly weapon in an angry or threatening manner.

Because of the proximity to the Boise State campus, BSU issued a BroncoAlert about the situation.  A second BroncoAlert also went out stating that threat was clear.
