The Jamestown Police Department arrested a Jamestown man just after 11 p.m. Tuesday for allegedly brandishing a gun in the parking lot of the Walmart Supercenter.

At around 10:50 p.m. Tuesday a Jamestown police officer responded to the business, to a report of road rage. Police said a man, later identified as D’Marco Smith, 24, of Jamestown, was driving a vehicle in the store’s parking lot and allegedly brandished a gun toward several people in another vehicle. One of the victims provided a description of the vehicle and its North Dakota license plate number to police.
