The suspect then drew a black semi automatic handgun, with laser sights, and pointed it at the complainant’s head. The suspect then fled the location in the suspect vehicle and he remains at large. The Dallas Police Department is trying to identify this suspect and also would like to speak with the citizen the suspect had pulled over at Lemmon and Wycliff.
