COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - Colorado Springs police are investigating after a man officers say is not a police officer held someone at gunpoint and identified himself as one.

Police responded around 1:15 a.m. to a mobile home park near West Fillmore Street and North Cascade Avenue to reports of a male party yelling that he was holding someone at gunpoint and saying he was a police officer. When officers arrived on scene, they determined he was not a certified police officer, nor was he affiliated with any local law enforcement agencies.

Police said the suspect was armed with a Glock pellet gun when they made contact with him. The incident is still under investigation as of Saturday morning, and officials say possible criminal charges are pending.
