FARGO - Police here arrested a 12-year-old boy Wednesday for allegedly pointing what turned out to be a pellet gun at passing traffic and a man with his baby.

Officers responded to Ninth Avenue South and 45th Street at 1:47 p.m. after a witness saw the boy pointing a black handgun at traffic, Sgt. Mark Lykken said.

With the help of witnesses, police found the building the boy entered and came across another victim who said the boy pointed a gun at him and his baby in the 4400 block of Ninth Avenue Circle South.

Police found the boy in his apartment in that building. He was arrested and taken to juvenile detention on suspicion of terrorizing.

A pellet gun that looks like a Sig Sauer handgun was taken into evidence, Lykken said.
