CORTE MADERA, Calif. (UPI) — Two teenage boys forced road closures and a police manhunt when Corte Madera, Calif., residents reported seeing the boys with what turned out to be BB guns.
Twin Cities police blocked traffic on Casa Buena Drive Tuesday after they received reports of a man walking down the street wearing camouflage clothes and carrying a rifle bag, police Sgt. Julie Gorwood told the Marin (Calif.) Independent Journal.
Twin Cities police — along with Mill Valley police, Marin sheriff’s deputies and the California Highway Patrol — found two 14-year-old boys about 30 minutes later, the Journal said Wednesday. The two boys were playing with Airsoft rifles, Gorwood said.
“They were not properly marked with the orange tips,” she said. “They were playing on the hillside, shooting at each other.”
Police seized the guns and released the teens to their parents. There were no plans to press charges, Gorwood said.
