SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. - (KNEP) - Wielding a gun and claiming it’s his town, a Scottsbluff juvenile finds himself on the wrong side of the law.
According to court records, Vicente Gonzalez was at a fast food restaurant Saturday night where he punched a minor in the face before pulling a .40 caliber hand gun from his sister’s pants and flashing it to him.
After exiting the establishment, Gonzalez got into the backside of a car and fired one round at a nearby pickup truck saying he wanted to fight them; no one was hurt.
A few hours later, Gonzalez approached a house in the 1600 block of 12th street and told the person inside that “it was his town” and flashed the gun at him. After being accused of wielding a fake weapon, Gonzalez fired a round into the air. At this point, the victim raised his hands and told Gonzalez he didn’t want to do this.
Gonzalez later admitted to the entire incident and is currently on probation for numerous felony offenses. He was arrested on charges including: three counts of terroristic threats, three counts of use of a weapon to commit a felony, discharging a firearm at an occupied vehicle, third degree assault and possession of a firearm by a prohibited juvenile offender.
