A 10-year-old trick-or-treater in South Carolina pulled a 9 mm handgun on a 28-year-old woman who said she was going to take his Halloween candy.
According to The Augusta Chronicle, an unidentified woman told Aiken police that she recognized the boys from her neighborhood. She added that the boys were trick-or-treating around 6:30 p.m. on Monday near Schroeder and George streets when she jokingly said that she would take their candy.
No you're not, one 10-year-old in the group told the woman before pointing the 9 mm handgun at her.
Aiken Public Safety Lt. David Turno told The Chronicle that the clip wasn't in the gun when the boy pointed it at the woman. Instead, the loaded clip was hidden in his costume. The boy's brother who is also 10 told police he, too, had a gun.
Police recovered the second gun on Tuesday, according to The Chronicle.
Authorities also told the paper that boy who pulled the gun was taken to a local police station and was turned over to his parents.
Turno told the newspaper that the boys got the guns from their grandfather.
