A Madison man was arrested early Sunday morning after pointing a gun at an officer who was investigating a report of shots fired on the east side.
Madison police officers were dispatched to the area of Hudson and Sommers avenues for reports of shots fired around 2:45 a.m., according to a release.
White investigating the incident, officers initially talked with Nathaniel W. Homestead, 23, of Madison, a couple blocks away, authorities said. Homestead told police he heard some shots while he was walking home.
About 20 minutes later, an officer saw Homestead walking in the 2700 block of Milwaukee Street, according to the release.
As the officer stopped his squad car he noticed Homestead had a handgun, which he pointed at the officer and his squad car, officials said. The officer was able to convince Homestead to put the gun down, and he was arrested.
