BARTLETT — A Bartlett resident visiting a relative on April 14 in the 700 block of West Bell Street was reportedly threatened with a gun by Louis Jayson Gutierrez.
Gutierrez, 32, arrived at the house and the victim reportedly asked Gutierrez if he was the person who tried to break into his parent’s home on Elm Street. Gutierrez supposedly asked the victim if he wanted to fight, but the victim turned around and walked away, according to an arrest affidavit.
However, the victim said he heard Gutierrez cock a gun and the victim’s cousin tell Gutierrez, “Man, don’t do that.”
The victim kept walking away, but he told investigators he was “in fear for his life,” the affidavit said.
The relative made a written statement that said Gutierrez pulled a gun from his pocket, pointed it the back of the victim’s head and cocked it. The relative said he told Gutierrez not to do that, but also heard Gutierrez say he’d been to prison before and “he did not play.”
Bartlett Police are reportedly aware of other times in the area in which Gutierrez threatened other people with a weapon, according to the affidavit.
The warrant for the second-degree felony offense was issued for Gutierrez’s arrest on May 13 by Bell County Justice of the Peace G.W. Ivey.
Gutierrez was in the Bell County Jail on Tuesday, held in lieu of a $100,000 bond.
