Fargo police arrested a man early Monday after he allegedly pointed a shotgun at two officers.

According to Sgt. Mark Lykken:

Police responded at 1:55 a.m. to a report of a loud party at 920 6th Ave. N.

One of the two officers who responded knocked on the door and identified himself. Someone inside initially said they couldn't open the door.

The door's deadbolt then slid open and a man opened the door holding a shotgun, allegedly pointing it at two officers. The officers took cover and the man went back inside.

Police were able to reach the man on his cell phone and talked to him for more than 30 minutes, after which he came out unarmed and was arrested.

Joshua Langstaff, 28, of Fargo was arrested on suspicion of terrorizing, Lykken said.

Police recovered a 12-gauge shotgun, he said.
