  • A 61-year-old Britt man was in custody Friday after allegedly pulling a gun and threatening to kill another man in a dispute over fireworks Thursday night.
    The St. Louis County Sheriff's Office reported that deputies were called to a fireworks complaint about 8:30 p.m. Thursday in Great Scott Township, about 12 miles northeast of Chisholm.
    While deputies were on their way to the area, the sheriff's office reported, the suspect drove to the nearby property of a 43-year-old West St. Paul man to confront him about fireworks.
    The suspect allegedly pulled out a handgun, pointed it at the head of the property owner and, in front of other witnesses, threatened to kill him.
    The 61-year-old man was arrested without incident, and authorities executed a search warrant at his residence. Officers seized several handguns that fit the description provided by the victim.
    The suspect is being held on tentative charges of second-degree assault, terroristic threats and damage to property.
