BB gun-wielding boy stops vehicle traffic near airport

A boy wielding a BB gun while playing in a park by a North Dakota runway caused police to stop vehicle traffic near the airport.

Police in Fargo received a report around 9 p.m. Friday about a person holding a gun at the park at Hector International Airport. Police closed the road leading to the airport and approached the park with guns drawn.

WDAY-TV reports that officers stopped a car that began to drive away and found that a 10-year-old boy inside the vehicle had a BB gun.

Police tell The Associated Press the child won't face charges.
