A Buffalo man was arrested early Friday morning for menacing after he pointed a 12-gauge shotgun at a police officer, authorities said.

When Buffalo police arrived at a Liddell Street residence to respond to a domestic trouble call, officials said, the complainant brought officers to a back room to retrieve her property before going to her mother’s house.

But behind the door of the room was Tommy Travis, 51, pointing a loaded shotgun at the officers, police said. Travis refused the first three orders to drop the gun but finally complied on the fourth order and was arrested.
