MERCED, Calif. (AP) __ A toy gun in the hands of an eight-year-old boy is being blamed for causing a scare on a Merced school bus.
Police detained the boy yesterday after other children said he pointed the toy gun at a classmate´s head at a bus stop. Six children were too scared to get on the bus. They went home, told their parents and the parents called police. Merced police pulled the bus over before it got to school and took the boy off. The boy was eventually turned over to his parents. Police say no charges will be filed.
