Suspect threatens victim on Facebook about calling 911

A man calls 911 early Thursday morning, when he hears his neighbor firing a gun.

Deputies arrived at a home near West 7th and South Denver, and confronted Michael Pointer.  They spoke with him and then left the property.

A short time later, the victim was on Facebook and received a threatening message from Pointer.

"Because TCSO IS A BUNCH OF COWARDS...YOU SHOULD mind your (cuss word) business."

Pointer then went on to dare the victim to call for help again.

Deputies say the suspect went back outside and started firing his rifle again.

The neighbor took Pointer up on his dare and called 911.

This time, he was taken into custody.

Pointer's grandmother told deputies he was staying at her place, and was upset with his spouse.
