A Lancaster resident pulled a loaded gun on a patrol officer on Hinchey Avenue, according to authorities. 

Police say an intoxicated 24 year-old male, whose name has not been released, opened the door of his residency and pointed a glock pistol at the officer. Police drew their weapons, asking for the person to put his gun down, which he did according to police.

Police recovered the loaded handgun. A revolver was also found in the apartment. The suspect does have a valid New York State pistol permit. 

Police originally responded to a complaint about extremely loud music at the apartment during the overnight hours. The music was so loud that the people inside the apartment could not hear the police bang on the door.

Police say they were able to reset the electrical breaker to stop the music. Police then banged on the interior door of the apartment, identifying themselves as officers of the law. The male subject then opened up the door, pointing a gun at the officer. 

The suspect was charged with menacing a police officer or peace officer and a violation of the Village of Lancaster noise ordinance. Bail was set at $2,500.
