10-year-old boy pulls gun after candy theft joke November 1, 2011 at 5:19 PM EST - Updated June 25 at 7:45 PM AIKEN, SC (AP) - South Carolina officials say a 10-year-old trick-or-treater pulled a 9-mm handgun on a woman who joked that she'd steal his candy on Halloween. The Augusta Chronicle reported Tuesday that a 28-year-old woman told authorities she recognized some youngsters Monday evening, and she joked she'd take their candy. Aiken Public Safety Lt. David Turno said a 10-year-old in the group said no and pointed the handgun at her. Turno said the gun wasn't loaded but the boy had a clip of ammunition. He was taken to the police station and was turned over to his parents. Turno said the boy's 10-year-old brother told officials he also had a gun and both weapons were recovered by police. Turno said the boys got them from their grandfather without his permission. Copyright 2011 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
