Ex-employee accused of pulling gun on manager of Pasadena pizzeria

PASADENA >> A disgruntled ex-pizzeria employee is accused of returning to his former workplace in Pasadena Sunday and pulling a gun on his former boss, police said.
Sheldon Brooks, 25, of Pasadena was booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon following the 4:20 p.m. incident at the restaurant in the 2400 block of East Foothill Boulevard, Pasadena police Lt. Jason Clawson said.
Brooks arrived at the business and threatened employees, the Clawson said. The manager ordered him to leave, and he complied.
The manager followed Brooks outside as he left,” the lieutenant said.
“The suspect produced a loaded handgun and pointed it at the manager,” he said. Brooks then drove away.
Police officers headed to Brooks home in the area of Lake Avenue and Belvidere Street and spotted his car, Clawson said.
As officers approached Brooks’ home, he tossed a bag containing the handgun out a window, police said. He then surrendered without a struggle.
According to Los Angeles County booking records, Brooks was being held in lieu of $50,000 bail pending his initial court appearance.
