Man seen with a gun

Just before 7pm on February 13th, police responded to the parking lot of a Willow Road apartment building when someone reported they had seen a man walking around with a black handgun.

Officers contained the area and were able to locate the man in question inside of the building, only to learn that the gun in question was a BB pistol that was a replica of a Beretta 92 pistol.

The pistol in question was seized for destruction and investigation determined that no criminal intent existed for charges to be laid.

This trend towards replica guns that are indistinguishable from the actual firearms is alarming. If you know anyone who has one of these replicas guns, please remind them of the dangers associated with having these guns and showing them anywhere in public.

In the interests of public safety, the primary response will be to consider them as actual firearms until a physical inspection proves otherwise. Be smart and be safe showing it in a public place is never a good idea.
