A 20-year-old Woodbury man is accused of pointing a gun at several young people while drunk and smoking pot at a house party about a month after his father was slain there by Woodbury police.

Jacob S. Hanson has been charged with making terroristic threats, a felony, and possessing a firearm while using a controlled substance, a misdemeanor. He is scheduled to appear in court next month.

According to the complaint filed in Washington County District Court, two witnesses at the May 14 party in the 7200 block of Braemar Lane N. told police Hanson had been drinking and suddenly pulled out a pistol.

One witness, who also said Hanson had been smoking marijuana, said he pointed the gun at several people, at one point dropping the magazine from the gun and reloading it, the complaint said. The other witness said he was just showing the gun, but acknowledged people at the party were frightened.

A subsequent search of the house led to the seizure of several weapons a few days later. Woodbury High School, located a few blocks away, was under a modified lockdown during the search. A search warrant affidavit noted that Hanson "is becoming more unstable since his father's death."

Hanson's father, Timothy S. Hanson, 55, was shot in the front yard of his home and killed April 15 after firing on Woodbury police officers with a .357 Magnum. One officer was hit in the leg. The elder Hanson died of multiple gunshot wounds.
