NIAGARA FALLS – Police charged a man who witnesses said they saw waving a sawed off shotgun around in a parking lot of a gas station just after midnight on Wednesday in the 600 block of 19th Street.
Donald L. Green, 45, of 19th Street, was charged with third-degree possession of a weapon, a felony, and second-degree menacing.
Police, with guns at the ready, immediately ordered Green to put his hands in the air and turn around. He was not found with a weapon, said police.
A search of Green’s residence, which was a short distance away from the parking lot, located an unloaded gun which had the serial numbers shaved off and the stock and barrel cut down.
