LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A 34-year-old man is behind bars after he reportedly called police to his home and pointed a gun at an LPD officer.

Around 1:40 a.m. Wednesday, police responded to a call from a man who believed intruders were in his attic at a home in the 6100 block of 8th Street.

When they arrived, officers attempted to talk to the resident but he ran out of the back door and climbed onto his roof. The man has been identified as 34-year-old Miguel Molina Morales.

Police reports say Morales was holding a loaded shotgun and waving it around. At one point, he pointed the gun at an officer. Morales was reportedly "sweating profusely and he was talking about unknown subjects in his house."

Police say the officer "was able to calm the subject and gain verbal compliance and have the subject put his weapon down."

Morales was talked down off of the roof and was taken into custody safely. He was charged with aggravated assault on a public servant and disorderly conduct with a firearm.

He is being held in the Lubbock County Detention Center on a $5,750 bond.

No injuries were reported.
