Police Get Call About 10-Year-Old Armed with BB Gun
The following information was supplied by the Stow Police Department.
Officers were dispatched to the 1400 block of Mac Drive Aug. 6 about a 10-year-old boy who was sitting outside the apartment building with a BB gun.
The caller told police the child harasses her younger children and makes them afraid to go outside. She also told Stow Police the boy was shooting the gun while outside.
An officer went to the apartment and talked to the child's mother, who denied her son had a BB gun outside, according to the report.
The 10-year-old came to the door and admitted to police that he had a BB gun outside, but did not shoot it, officers said.
He brought the gun to the officer, who forfeited it under possession of an airgun.
The case is being handled by Stow Youth Services.
