    Man Arrested in Connection with Discharging Firearm, Threatening Livermore Officers

    (Published Saturday, March 10, 2018)

    Police in Livermore on Friday arrested a man in connection with firing a gun and threatening officers.

    Alan Huntting, 55, was arrested on suspicion of discharging a firearm in a grossly negligent manner, which could result in injury or death and intentionally using the threat of violence or force to resist an officer, according to the Livermore Police Department.

    On Friday at 8 p.m., officers responded to the 1500 block of College Avenue on a report of a family disturbance.

    Police said the caller said her son made statements he was going to get a gun and point it at police officers.

    Responding officers attempted to contact Huntting outside the residence, but he retreated into a trailer and told officers he was going to come out with a firearm, police said.

    Officers attempted to make contact with Huntting, but he fired a round from the gun and then fired multiple rounds outside the trailer, police said.

    Huntting eventually came out to meet with officers, but he refused to comply with commands and was confrontational, police said.

    Officers took him to the ground in an attempt to detain him, but as they were taking him into custody, he resisted arrest and made threats of violence, police said.

    During the incident, the officers at the scene did not fire their weapons, police said.
