Synopsis: On 02-24-2014, at approximately 10:40 AM, an adult male reported to the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office that he was at the Arena Cove parking lot in Point Arena, California when Brian Shannon pointed a handgun at him and threatened to kill him.

The victim explained that he has known Shannon for several months and that they had been involved in an ongoing dispute regarding a business transaction.

The victims and witnesses described the handgun and the vehicle that Shannon had left in, and Deputies began checking the area.

A vehicle matching the description of Shannon's was located parked in the 200 block of Main Street in Point Arena and a subject matching Shannon's description was seated behind the wheel.

Deputies detained this subject, who was subsequently identified as being Brian Shannon.

During the investigation a very realistic looking replica handgun was located at Shannon’s residence and it was seized. Shannon was arrested without incident for violation of 422 PC.

A records check revealed that Shannon was wanted for outstanding "no bail" warrants from the State of Florida. Shannon was lodged at the Mendocino County Jail where he was to be held on a no bail status.
