Karnig Ohannessian, a deputy assistant secretary of the Navy, pulled the gun on partygoers in Fairfax, Virginia, last month, claiming the young men were drunk and causing a ruckus in front of his house.

“I can shoot the f*** out of you guys right now,” he’s heard saying in the video.

Ohannessian is a high-ranking official at the Pentagon, and has received two prestigious civilian service awards.

“You're pointing a gun at my friend,” one person is heard saying in a video.

“This is a criminal offense, so please stop it,” says another.

Ohannessian then tells the men to get in their car.

A woman  believed to be the man's wife — tried to calm him down.

“Let them leave,” she begs.

But the young men don't back down and appear to taunt him.

“Be thankful you have a gun, man. It shows what kind of a [expletive] you are,” said one of the men.

The mother of the young man wearing a hat in the video called local police. “It's horrifying to see someone pointing a gun at your child,” Anne Sheerin, the mother, told Inside Edition.

Now Ohannessian's superiors at the Navy are looking into the incident, saying in a statement, “Mr. Ohannessian's supervisor is taking the appropriate action to include working to understand the full details of what occurred.”

Ohannessian was briefly detained, but not charged.
