HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A Harrisburg firefighter accused of pointing a gun at police officers is headed to trial on endangerment and other charges.
Matthew Duvall, 42, waived his preliminary hearing this week and was bound for court on all counts, according to court records. A formal arraignment is scheduled Sept. 1.
Police said Duvall on May 24 reportedly was walking around with a gun and threatening people when officers were called to his home in the 1900 block of North Street.
Duvall went into his home as officers arrived, then came outside again and pointed the gun at them, police said. The officers ordered Duvall to place the gun on the ground and to raise his hands. Eventually, he complied.
The MC-10-style .45-caliber gun had been reported as stolen in Swatara Township, police said.
Duvall is charged with recklessly endangering, receiving stolen property, public drunkenness, and disorderly conduct.
He was off-duty at the time of his arrest and was placed on administrative leave.
