Man Threatens Woman

As usual, the story's headline obscures and makes invisible the subject and the object of the verb in question. Who is mysteriously pulling guns? At whom? The location is less relevant than the humans involved, yet no people get top billing. Odd.

Gun pulled at party
Halifax Regional Police are looking for a man who had a handgun when he threatened a woman at a party Saturday night. The incident happened at about 11:30 p.m. at a home on Emerald Crescent in Spryfield, police said.
The man with the handgun was gone before officers arrived.
