LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they've arrested a Fairdale man after he pointed a gun at two people and threatened to kill someone.

It happened on W. Manslick Road, near Mason Lane, just before 11 p.m. Thursday, according to a news release.

Police say they received a report that a man was in the yard, pointing a gun at people. When they arrived, they allegedly found 25-year-old Kyle A. Clark, armed with a Smith & Wesson 9mm semi-automatic handgun.

One of the victims allegedly told police that Clark put him in a chokehold and held the gun to his head, before punching him in the back of his head and slamming his head against a brick wall.

Police say another man approached Clark and pleaded for him to let the first victim go.

At that point, Clark allegedly told them, "I didn't come to fight, I came here to kill someone."

Police say the second victim told them Clark put the gun to his face and used it to physically push his glasses up his nose.

Police arrested Clark and charged him with two counts of first degree wanton endangerment and fourth degree assault, according to the arrest report. Clark was allegedly screaming and yelling while he was in custody, and shouting obscenities at the two victims.
