Details

Multiple officers responded to a call of a gun on a city bus Wednesday night. A Madison Metro driver pulled over on S. Midvale Blvd., near Odana Rd., after a passenger reported seeing a young man in possession of a handgun. The suspect was with a group of his peers, and all fled the bus as officers neared. They were contacted a short distance away, and a weapon was found on someone's yard. An officer and a sergeant said it appeared to be a real gun. However, upon closer examination it was not. " The only notation I could find to denote it was a BB gun was a very small area near the bottom of the hand grip that had the letters 'BB' on it," wrote one officer in his report. The young men claimed they found the weapon on Allied Dr. The primary suspect, the young man who had the gun tucked in his waistband on the bus, refused to give police his name, saying it was the officers' jobs to figure out who he is. The 12-year old claims he is a member of a street gang.
