FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) -A man is now charged after Fargo Police say he pointed a gun at a group of people in downtown Fargo.

27-year-old Jesse James Burnett is charged with one count of felony terrorizing.

Documents say an officer was flagged down behind the Bismarck Tavern around 1:30 Wednesday morning about a man waving a gun around outside.

The victim told officers a verbal argument began inside the Bismarck, and said when he later went outside he saw Burnett pointing the gun and ‘feared for everybody’s life.' The victim says he started video recording on his phone in case anyone got shot.

Officers searched the vehicle Burnett had been seen in and say they located the handgun and seven grams of marijuana.

Burnett will be in court again on Nov. 19.
