A Cape Girardeau man is facing charges after he allegedly used a gun to threaten a woman. 35-year old
Lloyd Austin Jr. has been charged with unlawful use of a weapon in an incident Tuesday in the 3000 block of Mimosa Street. Cape Girardeau Police Sgt. Adam Glueck said the threat took place during an argument between Lloyd and a woman he knew. No one was injured. Lloyd allegedly brandished a black semi-automatic handgun, chambered a round, then put his arm through the window of a vehicle where the woman was sitting, saying he was going to kill her. Lloyd was released from custody Wednesday on a $15,000 bond. No court dates have been scheduled.
