CHATTANOOGA — A 29-year-old man faces seven counts of aggravated assault after police said he pointed an air soft gun at his neighbors, including several young children.

The Daisy Air Model gun that police seized is made to look like a Beretta Model 92, according to the arrest report.

Chattanooga police responded Tuesday to apartments at 4527 Hancock Road after receiving numerous calls that Joseph Kagombe was threatening other residents with a handgun.
