The incident happened at 11:45 a.m. Saturday in the 2600 block of West Ninth Street, near McLean Boulevard, said Sgt. Scott Brunow of the Wichita Police Department.

Police were called after the 69-year-old man pulled out a .38-caliber revolver and pointed it at a 33-year-old man and his dog.

Previously, the two had been discussing the dog, Brunow said.

No shots were fired and no one was injured in the incident.
