The victim told Emergency Communications Dispatchers that while driving by a residence on the 1100 block of Hunts Drive in McKinleyville, a male subject outside the residence, later identified as 20-year-old Juan Carlos Newman, brandished a firearm at the victim. 

The victim, whose family was inside the vehicle, drove home. Newman reportedly followed the victim’s vehicle, arrived outside the victim's residence and attempted to gain entry inside the home.
