Police are seeking public assistance in identifying a man accused of pointing a gun at someone at Zionsville Christian Church before 8 a.m. Saturday.

No shots were fired, and the suspect was last seen running north from the church at 120 N. 9th St., Zionsville Police Sgt. Brad Kiefer said in a statement.

ZPD and other officers canvassed the area on foot, while the Boone County Sheriff’s Office brought K9 officers and bloodhounds, and the Zionsville Fire Department drone flew overhead in the search.

Police cleared the church and searched nearby trials.

The suspect was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and black sweatpants. The victim described him as a mustached Hispanic male, about five feet, six inches to five feet, seven inches tall.

He reportedly displayed a gun to the victim and ran away.

Police ask that anyone with information about the incident or suspect call 317-873-5967 and speak with ZPD Detective Josh Samuelson.

Boone County Communications Center calls for service for Friday indicated a man looked at his reflection in the church door at about 7:30 p.m. and got back into a silver Toyota hatchback car and left.

Police did not immediately return a call seeking further information, and it is unknown if the man who looked at his reflection is thought to be the same man as the suspect.
