Authorities have arrested a man they say threatened multiple people with a gun.

Lincoln police officers on Thursday arrested 19-year-old Lynn Berry for two counts of terroristic threats, as well as drug and weapons charges.

On May 11, a 19-year-old woman reported she had allowed Berry to live with her for a short time but was asking him to leave. While in the process of moving him out, a vehicle pulled up and the people inside stole things from the car the victim and Berry were loading Berry’s belongings into, police said.

The woman reported Berry then pointed a gun at her and told her to get into a car and drive, while also accusing her of “setting him up” to have his things stolen. Berry threatened the alleged victim, who told officers she thought Berry would kill her, police said. Berry intended to take the woman to a family member’s home so they could assault her, police said.

On May 31, Berry arrived at a family member’s home and began causing a disturbance. During that incident, a 43-year-old woman reported Berry jumped on the hood of a car, pulled a gun out and threatened her.

On June 11, Berry was located by officers who found him with $3,000 cash, as well as various drugs and paraphernalia, police said.

Police are still investigating various elements of the case, and say more arrests are possible.
