DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — A Dayton juvenile is in trouble after carrying a BB gun near a school.

Police were called to the Dayton Roosevelt Center located at 2021 West Third Street before 6:30 p.m. Friday after a woman called 911 and said she saw a juvenile put a gun in his pocket.

When officers arrived, they immediately secured the boy since the location was next to the Dayton Boys Preparatory Academy. Police stated they found he was carrying a black BB gun, which they said resembled a handgun.

Officers placed him in the back of a cruiser. They said the juvenile continuously acted as if the offense was funny and laughed and smiled as his friends walked by.

Police charged the juvenile with being unruly.
