An Allegheny County man who is not permitted to have a gun is accused of showing another motorist a firearm on Route 22 on Sunday afternoon, according to state police.

Dylan Peter Dunbar, 24, of Hazelwood, allegedly displayed the weapon in Salem Township after an incident with another driver, police said.

Authorities were notified of two vehicles driving erratically on Route 22 westbound at 2:44 p.m. The victim told police the driver of a Chevrolet Silverado, later identified as Dunbar, showed him a handgun while both were traveling on the highway.

Police caught up to Dunbar on Old William Penn Highway in Murrysville. Officers found a loaded handgun in the center console. He did not have a permit to conceal a firearm and a previous felony conviction prohibits him from possessing a gun, police said.

Dunbar is charged with firearms violations and terroristic threats. He was being held at the Westmoreland County Prison on $25,000 bail. A March 18 preliminary hearing is set.

He did not have an attorney listed in online court records.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
