"Officers were conducting a traffic stop on a vehicle," Ladd told K2 Radio News. "The driver was reported to have pointed a firearm at someone in the area."

Ladd said that the suspect, a juvenile, is in custody and that there is no ongoing threat to the public.

She also stated that no injuries have occurred.
