Here are tips to prevent your home from being broken into. Remember, if you observe a suspicious person or behavior, call 911.

Police arrested a 23-year-old man Thursday night after he allegedly threatened a man with a gun in a convenience store at 25th and O streets.

Sgt. Chris Vigil said it happened just before 8 p.m. at the EZ Go. An employee called 911 after seeing a man in the store point a gun at another man's legs.

The victim said it started with an argument at the gas pumps.

When police got there, the suspect was gone. But surveillance video led to his vehicle, which police found and stopped near 27th Street and Porter Ridge Road.

Vigil said the driver, Abraheem Muhammed, started digging around in the center console as the officer walked up and had a magazine from a pistol in his hand.

He said police removed Muhammed from the vehicle and ultimately arrested him on suspicion of terroristic threats. Vigil said police found a Beretta 9 mm pistol in a search of the vehicle.

Prosecutors later declined to file charges in the case at this time, and Muhammed was released from jail.
