Boys arrested for having imitation gun


MADISON (WKOW) -- Madison Police arrested two middle school students Friday following reports that they had produced a facsimile firearm, which is a nonfunctional imitation.

The boys, ages 13 and 14, were riding home from school on a Madison Metro bus Thursday afternoon. 

Witnesses told the bus driver the teens had pulled a real looking gun from a backpack and had possibly been pointing it at others.  Officers recovered two BB guns and ammunition from the home of one of the arrested teens.

The teens were arrested and taken to the Juvenile Reception Center each on a tentative charge of use of facsimile firearm.
