PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Police say employees of a Fred Meyer store in southeast Portland report that a man who was stopped by store security officers on suspicion of shoplifting pointed a handgun at them, ran out of the store, ran back in to retrieve a prescription, then fled.

Sgt. Pete Simpson says officers searching the neighborhood Monday afternoon arrested a 23-year-old man. They also located a replica firearm believed used in the store.

Simpson said detectives were interviewing the man, who was expected to be booked into jail.
