Tulsa police now say a domestic argument between man and woman and a child led to a search for a possible gunman at Utica Square.

Police said James Michael Coman pointed a gun at his sister while she was holding an infant in a car outside of Pottery Barn Kids, there were no shots fired. The woman ran into the store and that's when they called police.

Police on scene said the man initially tried to follow his sister. 

"From my understanding when she parked out front she grabbed the kid ran inside he attempted initially follow her inside," said Ofc. Leland Ashley with the Tulsa Police Department.

They said the man then went to St. John to commit himself, but left before being seen.

"They dictate the situation. They dictate how we take them into custody. They dictate if they're going to go peacefully," said Ashley.

The man was found at another location on Harvard and was taken into custody. He faces a complaint of pointing a deadly weapon. The weapon has not been recovered.

Cascia Hall, Monte Cassino and St. John were on lockdown during this search, but all have been lifted.

Shouldn't that headline be "WOMAN says man pointed...."? The police haven't seen any gun, so why would they say the man pointed one???
