MADISON, Wis. -

Four boys were cited Wednesday after a Madison Metro passenger reported seeing a young man in possession of a handgun.

Officers responded to the Madison Metro bus on South Midvale Boulevard, near Odana Road, at 9:34 pm after all suspects had fled the bus. The two 12-year-olds and 13-year-olds were found a short distance away. Police found what was determined to be a BB gun in a nearby yard. Officers reported the weapon had the appearance of a real gun.

Three suspects were cited for party to a crime of possession of a pellet gun under the age of 18. The primary suspect was cited for underage possession of a pellet gun and taken to the Juvenile Reception Center on tentative charges of disorderly conduct and obstructing. The primary suspect refused to give police his name and claimed to be a member of a street gang.
