Sep. 26-A Longmont man was arrested after police say he pointed a gun at people and threatened to kill them before firing the weapon off into the air last week.

Kevin Franklin Elmarr II, 43, was arrested on suspicion of four counts of felony menacing, four counts of reckless endangerment, third-degree assault, disorderly conduct and possession of a weapon by a previous offender.

Elmarr II is the son of convicted murderer Kevin Elmarr, who was convicted in 2015 of first-degree murder in the 1987 death of his ex-wife, Carol Murphy.

Elmar II has a substantial criminal history of his own, including a stabbing case in a 2016. He also has prior convictions for theft, forgery, witness tampering and drug charges.

According to an affidavit, police responded to the 2300 block of Main Street at 10 p.m. Thursday for a report of a gunshot.

When police arrived, witnesses said Elmarr II had drove up to a group of people and demanded a woman that was in the group leave with him, grabbing her and trying to drag her over a guardrail.

Witnesses said that when one person tried to break them up, Elmarr II took a handgun out of his waistband and pointed it at people in the group, saying "Which one of you (expletive) am I going to have to kill?"

According to the affidavit, Elmarr II then fired one shot into the air before fleeing the scene.

Police did not locate Elmarr II on scene, but they found one shell casing where witnesses said he had been standing. Police applied for an arrest warrant, and Elmarr II was arrested on Saturday, according to Boulder County Jail records.

Witnesses did say Elmarr II knew the woman, though their exact relationship was redacted in the affidavit.

Elmarr II remains in custody on $10,000 bond as he awaits a formal filing of charges on Tuesday. His booking photo was not immediately released.
