Man held gun to teen's head, fired shots, sheriff says

SACRAMENTO - A 15-year-old boy claims a man held a gun to his head and threatened to kill him Wednesday night, the El Dorado County Sheriff's Office says.

Shots were fired in the incident on the 2900 block of Spruce Street in Pollock Pines but the boy wasn't hurt.

Arrested on suspicion of attempted murder was Lawrence Stone of Fernley, Nevada.

It wasn't clear what provoked the situation. The 911 caller said there was an argument between the suspect and teen over a gun.

The teen also claimed Stone threw him to the ground first, the sheriff's report stated.

Deputies found Stone at a relative's nearby apartment. They also reported seizing a loaded semi-automatic handgun in his possession.
