    UTICA — A girls modified basketball game at a Utica middle school was called off Tuesday night after a teenage boy dropped a pistol on the floor and a police pursuit ensued...

    The officer noticed it was a handgun and yelled to another officer who was in uniform and on duty as a school resource officer at the game, police said...

    They chased him outside and repeatedly ordered him to drop the gun, but instead he pointed the gun at police, officials said... (continues)

    The article goes on to explain how the officers had to seek cover as they confronted the suspect and "continuously asked" him to "drop the gun" --- and they only learned it was a "BB" gun and that the suspect was 14 after taking him into custody.

      After the suspect was taken into custody, officers then learned it was a BB gun and the suspect was a 14-year-old boy, police said.
