PROVIDENCE, R.I. — A 14-year-old has been arrested after allegedly taking two air guns into a Providence public library.
The boy, whose name was not released because he is a juvenile, allegedly walked into the Mount Pleasant branch of the public library Monday afternoon wearing two air pistols, one silver and one black, in his waistband.
Such guns can usually fire either BBs or pellets.
Providence Police Maj. Thomas Oates said someone called police after spotting the boy carrying a weapon on the street.
The boy was found sitting at a back table in the library. He was arrested and charged with possession of a firearm by a minor.
The boy was released pending a future court hearing.
