Man arrested for threatening with a gun

Grambling Police arrested a man Saturday morning after he had allegedly threatened another man with a pistol.

About 9:00 a.m. Saturday morning, the victim notified Grambling Police that Eric Love, 30, of Grambling, threatened him with a 9 millimeter pistol, including firing a shot in the air.

Within minutes, a GPD patrol officer saw Love walking at the Pinecrest II Apartments where he was taken into custody.

The victim told officers he was sitting on his porch when he saw Love walking down the road toward his house. The victim said when Love reached him, he pulled out a gray pistol from his pocket, cocked it, and pointed it at him stating, “I will kill you right now.” Love told him if he didn’t want to die, “have my money this evening.” Love then allegedly left the porch, walked back up the street, and fired a single gunshot into the air. The victim said this concerned using Love’s mother’s hedge clippers and Love telling him he owed him $25 for their use.

Love was booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center for aggravated assault with a firearm, illegal use of a weapon, illegal carrying of a weapon, and possession of a firearm by convicted felon. Love’s bail was set at $65,000.
