WEST ODESSA - A West Odessa man is behind bars after pointing a gun at two sheriff's deputies.

Investigators say 64-year-old Hector Flores did it.

We're told deputies were checking out a call about gunfire on the 6000 of West University back in June.

When they arrived, they saw a gun in Flores' hand.

Deputies say he pointed it right at them.

They managed to wrestle the gun out of Flores' hand before any shots were fired.

Flores is being held on a $100,000 bond.
