El Paso man who threatened to shoot family facing aggravated assault charges

EL PASO, Texas -- A man who threatened to shoot members of a woman's family is facing aggravated assault charges.

Police said 40-year-old Joshua Trevizo pointed a shotgun at a woman in his family and threatened to hurt her parents in response to an argument they were having about their dog.

Trevizo allegedly told the victim he would "show her what a real active shooter is."

When police responded to the scene they observed Trevizo driving near the woman's parents home. He was pulled over and placed under arrest.

A firearm, armored vest, and a machete were found in Trevizo's vehicle at the time of his arrest.

The incident happened at the 4000 Block of El Campo Thursday.
