MIDLAND COUNTY - Pointing a gun at two coworkers put one man behind bars in Midland County.

42-year-old Santos Montez-Cruz has been hit with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

When deputies responded to a disturbance in the 5200 block of East Loop 250 early Friday morning, they found Cruz in the back bedroom of a bunkhouse.

He was placed in cuffs as a precaution and deputies noticed an empty pistol case next to his bed.

The victims told authorities Cruz was upset because he got in trouble at work.

He grabbed the weapon, loaded it and pointed it at both of them.

The victims also recorded the incident on a cell phone.

The handgun was later found in a field behind the bunkhouse.
