A Lancaster woman was shaken, but uninjured, after a man pointed a gun at her house late last month. 

The 20-year-old woman spoke with officers about 2 a.m. May 26 in the lobby of the Municipal Justice Center, only hours after the incident, according to a Lancaster Police Department incident report. 

The woman told officers there had been a fight at her Robinson Road home involving her cousin and several unknown women.

The fight began shortly after the victim heard a car horn blow in front of her house and noticed several women getting out of a car, the report said. The victim told police the women had come to fight her cousin. 

After the fight began, the victim grabbed her cousin and brought her inside. It was unknown what the fight was about, the report said. 

The woman then noticed a white or gray vehicle, possibly a Crown Victoria or Grand Marquis, pull up to a house across the street, the report said. 

Several men exited the car and one of the men tried to start another fight between the women at the house, the report said. 

As the victim and the man began arguing, the victim recalled hearing the man threaten to shoot her house, the report said.

“(He) then pulled a black semi-automatic pistol with a red laser beam on it from his right pocket,” the report said. 

She reported seeing the man point the gun at her house, though he did not point it at her. He then jumped back inside his car and drove away. 

Police were not able to speak with any other people who were at her home, the report said. 

Lancaster Police Capt. Scott Grant said the case remains open and active.
