A Casper man will avoid prison time after admitting his role in a gun incident.

Eighteen-year-old Austin Ideen was given a three-to-five year suspended prison sentence with three years of probation, after pleading guilty to one charge of possession of a deadly weapon with unlawful intent.

Investigators say in October, Ideen, along with Jordan Flock and others, showed up at Taylor Few’s apartment.

Once they entered, Few said he saw one man holding a shotgun and Few’s roommate was able to wrestle it away from him.

Few said he and Flock had gotten into an argument the night before over a woman and Flock said he’d be back.

Ideen told police that the confrontation was a scare tactic aimed at Few.

The gun did not go off during the confrontation and no one was injured.

Flock was sentenced last month for his part in the incident.
