Paul Matthew Custer
Tulsa, OK -
An 20-year-old man was arrested Monday morning after he threatened his family with a gun at their north Tulsa apartment.
Paul Matthew Custer was arrested at 5:30 am after Tulsa Police responded to an apartment at North Hartford, west of North Peoria, in reference to someone threatening to "shoot the door down."
According to the police report, the suspects two children, their mother and two other adults were inside the apartment at the time of the incident. The occupants told police that they heard Custer insert a round into a gun.
Upon their arrival at the apartment, police said Custer ran from the scene and refused their commands to stop. He then ran around a corner and proceeded to throw the gun over a short picket fence.
Police said the gun was a Mac 11 with an extended barrel and was chamber loaded with 13 rounds in the magazine. They were then able to apprehend Custer and he was taken in custody.
Back in 2009, Custer was adjudicated as a juvenile. He's due in court Oct. 23 on charges of threat with a violent act, possession of firearm by an adjudicated delinquent and obstructing police.
