Late Sunday afternoon the Lincoln County 911 Center received a call about an 11-year-old boy at the Sutherland Soccer Field who was in possession of a revolver-style handgun and that the boy had pointed the gun at a child. A deputy responding to the scene found many people at the soccer field with games being played. The deputy advised coaches and officials that there was a threat and they all canceled the games and left the area.
The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office says a search of the field and buildings by the lone deputy did not locate the young male.
Another deputy arrived and located the suspected male in another area of town. The male was detained and searched. The Deputy located the gun in a back pack the male was carrying. The gun was a Pellet revolver and was made of heavy steel. The gun functioned and looked like a real firearm. The Deputy also located a pair of multicolored brass knuckles in the young male’s possession. The male was placed in custody and further investigation into the matter continues.
