SAN MATEO – A 27-year-old man was arrested Thursday in San Mateo on suspicion of brandishing a gun at a father and son, as well as possessing a number of illicit firearms, including a short-barreled AR-15 and an AR-15 with a grenade launcher, police said.

The incident unfolded just after 3 p.m. in the 600 block of 10th Avenue, according to the San Mateo Police Department. After arriving at the scene, officers learned a man had retrieved a firearm from his residence following a brief argument with another man and his 4-year-old son after the pair was seen delivering an invitation to a neighbor’s home.

The father told officers the man stood in front of his vehicle and pointed a gun at him and his son, preventing them from leaving. Police said the man returned to his residence before officers arrived. Officers surrounded the man’s home and issued a citywide emergency alert. Crisis negotiators were called to the scene and the man eventually surrendered without incident, police said.

No injuries were reported.

Officers obtained a gun violence restraining order from a judge and searched the man’s residence. They found and seized a number of illicit firearms including an AK-47, a short-barreled AR-15, an AR-15 with a grenade launcher, handguns, a “tremendous amount” of ammunition, and firearms paraphernalia, according to police.
