(Rochester, MN) —  A Rochester man is accused of pointing a replica gun at police officers during a domestic assault call Sunday afternoon.  Police  were called to an apartment near Mayo High School after neighbors reported hearing a man tell a woman, “I’m going to kill you.” Authorities got a key to the apartment and say the 61-year-old suspect pointed a gun at them but did not fire.  The man then discarded his gun and was taken into custody.  The gun he pointed was an airsoft made to look like a semi-automatic handgun.  Officers say the woman was found locked in a bedroom.
