An El Paso man tried to “rack a round” into a handgun as he ran away from officers on Wednesday.

Deshaun Montrill Williams, 38, was wanted on warrants for unlawful carrying of a gun and possession a controlled substance. Police located him at about 8:55 a.m. on March 27 at a Howdy’s parking lot at McCombs and U.S. 54, police said in a news release. 

As Gang unit and SWAT team officers approached him, he ran away carrying a handgun, police said.
