A verbal argument between two people allegedly escalated to one man pointing a gun at the other, police continue to investigate.

Windsor police responded to the Ford Test Track area in the 3000 block of Seminole Street Saturday around 10:15 p.m. for a report of a person with a gun.

Police say a victim who had been driving in the area reported that the suspect who was riding a bike had pointed the gun at him.

The two were unknown to each other, police say, but had a verbal argument before the suspected pointed the gun.

Police obtained a description of the suspect and several officers searched the area.
