A 23-year-old Great Falls man was charged with felony assault with a weapon and misdemeanor assault after he pulled a gun on another person on a Helena street, authorities said.

Helena police were called Sunday to the 1300 block of Boulder Avenue on a report of two males fighting in the middle of the street, according to an affidavit filed Monday in Helena Justice Court.

Officers were told by dispatchers that a second call had come in saying someone had pulled a gun, later identified as a black Smith and Wesson M&P 9mm, on another person, according to court documents.

An officer met with a man who said three people in a truck, two males and a female in a vehicle later identified as a black 2008 Chevy Silverado, had followed him from the 3000 block of North Montana Avenue to the 1300 block of Boulder Avenue. He said he knew one of the men in the truck.
