A 13-year-old boy from Detroit threw a short-barreled shotgun to the ground near Nelson Street in Pontiac while fleeing from police, according to a release by the Pontiac Police Department.
Pontiac Deputies arrived at Nelson Street at 2:42 a.m. where five juveniles were walking down the street -- one was believed to have posession of a gun. The 13-year-old ran from police and threw a short-barreled shotgun to the ground behind a house.
The 13-year-old subject with the shotgun was lodged at Children's Village on a petition for Posession of Short-Barreled Shotgun and Curfew Violation.
The four other juveniles were taken into custody, interviewed and turned over to their parents or gaurdians. Police said they prepared petitions for curfew violations.
