ROCHESTER, Minn. – A man accused of threatening people with a shotgun is pleading not guilty.

Jordan Mitchell Blevins, 36 of Rochester, is charged with possession of a firearm after being convicted of a crime of violence and 5th degree possession of marijuana. He was arrested on February 26 after Rochester police were told Blevins threated people at Fusion Lounge with a shotgun.

One person told officers that Blevins pointed the shotgun at his head and racked it.

Police say they located Blevins at his home and found a shotgun and a hand gun.

Blevins was convicted in Olmsted County in 2010 of false imprisonment and two counts of drive-by shooting. Authorities say Blevins kidnapped a woman and her dog and threatened to shoot them, but wound up shooting himself in the arm. He was sentenced to eight years and six months in prison but was given intensive supervised release in October 2017.
