AIKEN, Ga., Nov. 2 (UPI) — Police in Georgia said a 10-year-old trick-or-treater pulled a gun on a woman who joked about stealing his candy.
Aiken police said the 28-year-old woman told officers she recognized some of the boys in the group of about 10 trick-or-treaters from her neighborhood and joked with them that she would like to take their candy, The Augusta (Ga.) Chronicle reported Wednesday.
Police said the 10-year-old boy responded, “No, you’re not,” and brandished a 9mm handgun, which he pointed at the woman.
Investigators said the clip was not in the gun at the time but the boy did have a loaded clip in his possession.
Police said the boy’s brother, also 10, told officers he also had a gun, which was recovered Tuesday morning.
The boys, who were released to their parents, told officers they had taken the guns from their grandfather without permission.
