Police are looking for a construction worker who reportedly pulled a gun during an argument near Crystal City.

Initial reports suggest other construction workers were able to wrestle the gun away from the man after he brandished it during an argument at a construction site at Old Jefferson Davis Highway and S. Clark Street.

The man fled on foot wearing an orange reflective vest and a hard hat, which police have since located. Police are setting up a perimeter to try to find the man.

It’s unclear if the man was working at the Long Bridge Park construction site or on one of several other projects in the area.

Update at 9:45 a.m. — The search has been called off.

  • I saw him. He was smoking under the overpass with an Indian and a biker.

    • Tabby

      Smoking? Is that what they were doing?

      I reckon he’s in Chick-Fil-A.

  • Overgrown Bush

    “I’ve warned you for the last time. Get your own damn hammer!”

  • CW

    Hide your kids. Hide your wife.

  • NotYou

    “I’d be asking myself… was that five nails or six?”

  • GMo

    “The search has been called off” So…did they aprehend him or what???

  • Pink EYE

    So now there is a loaded ditched gun in that area too I’m guessing? Keep the kids away, right?

    • Police recovered the weapon. I think the guy’s coworkers wrestled it away from him.
