It's a jumpy, nervous time for America!
A late afternoon basketball game Tuesday between Donovan Middle School and Notre Dame was stopped after an incident involving a 14-year old boy - who was observed by an off-duty policeman as he accidentally dropped a BB gun inside the Donovan gym - as the youth exited the facility, the off-duty cop gave chase - was joined by an on-duty officer outside - WKTV reports that the boy pointed the gun at one of the officers. The boy eventually dropped the weapon. It was then learned the gun was a BB gun.
Police say the teen will face a number of charges.
