(WXYZ) - The Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office has a warning for parents. It comes after two teenage boys were pointing BB guns at drivers on a busy street.
It happened along Ellsworth Road near Hewitt in Ypsilanti last Sunday night. Deputies from the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office were sent there right away.
Investigators say there's no evidence that the BB guns were fired, but deputies did speak with the teens' parents and took the guns from the home. They're hoping what happened sends a message to both kids and parents.
"Part of this is making sure that parents just know hat these replica guns can be very dangerous. It's hard for anyone, trained law enforcement or residents to decipher what's a BB gun or what's a real weapon," says Jackson.
