A man driving near W. 15th Street and Santa Fe in Edmond called police when someone in a car flashed a gun at him.

The man said it happened during the afternoon of Friday, December 16. The man called police and based on his description, police pulled over a red Toyota Celica with two men inside.

Officers patted down James Ray, 19, and Thomas Raymond, 18. When they didn't find a weapon, they asked the men if they had a gun. Raymond said they did not have a real gun, but they did have a BB gun underneath the seat.

According to the police report, Ray denied pointing the gun at anyone but did admit he put the BB gun outside the window and twirled it on his finger. The victim later identified Ray as the man who pointed the gun at him on the road.

When police searched the car, they found the CO2-powered gun, along with a pill bottle filled with metal BBs. Officer said they also smelled a strong odor of marijuana, and they found a broken methamphetamine pipe on the car floor.
