Officers tackled the man and he pulled out a handgun, pointing it at them, and a struggle ensued, McDonough said. Police tried to subdue the man with pepper spray, but he gave up only after an officer hit him with a baton, McDonough said.
Officers found a box of ammunition in one of the man's pockets, police said.
Louis Varela, 23, was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, resisting officers with violence, brandishing a firearm at police and carrying a concealed firearm.
