Kids point fake guns at cars in Boynton Beach

Boynton Beach police responded to a call of two children pointing BB guns at cars on Miner Road and Ocean Parkway Monday afternoon. 

Officers say the children, 10 and 12-years-old, begun to run when police arrived, but stopped and dropped the weapons. 

One of the officers said the guns looked so real he didn't realized it was a BB gun until he got up close and saw it written on the barrel. 

The young boys were then released to the custody of their mother. 

Police are using this as a stern warning that it's not always easy for them to tell a fake gun from a real one.
