A Portland man was arrested Sunday afternoon in East Deering after police said he pulled a gun and threatened someone inside the Paris Farmers Union.

Sgt. Jake Titcomb said Portland police were called to the Warren Avenue hardware store around 1:40 p.m. to investigate a report of a man threatening another person inside the store with a firearm.

Titcomb said officers arrested Kevin Gray, 22, on Arcadia Street without incident. No shots were fired and no injuries were reported.

Portland police transported Gray to the Cumberland County Jail, where he was being held without bail Sunday night pending his first court appearance.

Gray is facing multiple charges, including a felony offense. Titcomb declined to go into greater detail about the nature of the charges or the circumstances that led up to the incident.
