Trick-or-Treater, 10, pulls gun

A 10-year-old trick-or-treater pulled a gun on a woman who joked that she would take his candy on Halloween.

Once again, the photo above isn't him.
It's the best photo we could come up with.

Anyway, the 28-year-old woman said she recognized some boys from her neighborhood while they were trick-or-treating about 6:30 p.m. and was just kidding when she told them she would take their candy.
One 10-year-old in the group of about 10 kids said, “no you’re not …” and then pointed a 9 mm handgun at her.
Apparently the clip was not in the gun at the time, but the boy did have a loaded clip in his possession.
The boy’s brother, also 10, told authorities he also had a gun.
The second weapon was recovered.
The boy who pulled the gun on the woman was taken to the police station where he was turned over to the custody of his parents.
The two boys got the weapons from their grandfather without permission.
