KINGMAN, AZ - Mohave County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a man Monday evening on suspicion of impersonating a U.S. marshal and shooting at a car from his motorcycle, the sheriff’s office said.
A man approached four women who had a puppy outside a home on the 1700 block of Devlin Avenue, saying his dog had been stolen Sunday, according to the sheriff’s office. One of the women told him the puppy belonged to her, and as they walked away, the suspect said he was a U.S. marshal and pulled a gun from his waistband.
The women got into a car and drove away, with the suspect following in a motorcycle and firing twice at their car, the sheriff’s office said. Nobody was injured.
Deputies responded at about 6:16 p.m. to reports of gunfire in the area of Patsy Drive and Devlin Avenue, according to the sheriff’s office. They found a man attempting to drive away on his motorcycle in the 3900 block of Devlin Avenue.
The man identified himself as a U.S. marshal, but the deputies determined he was not law enforcement, the sheriff’s office said. They identified him as Vincent Nicholas Demarco, 47, and detained him without incident, finding two guns stuffed into his waistband. Demarco, a Kingman resident, was booked into the Mohave County Jail.
