A 22-year-old Dumfries man is accused of pointing his weapon at a police officer, authorities report.

Casildo Agosto was charged with assault and battery on law enforcement officer and reckless handling of a firearm, according to the Prince William County Police Department.

Authorities report that they were called at 11:30 p.m. on Thursday to the 1800 block of Gableridge Turn in Woodbridge to investigate a call of shots fired in the area.
