It had been reported that a male subject was intoxicated and armed with a handgun. While armed he made threats to kill others and himself and pointed the handgun at the complainant. Lake Hallie Police and Chippewa County Deputies responded to the scene and the subject responded to efforts to leave the apartment building, but would not fully co-operate and exit.
