CLEVELAND – Police sources have confirmed to the Fox 8 I-Team that four juveniles were arrested at Steelyard Commons Sunday night.

The teens were taken into custody after someone called police and said they were walking around and pointed a gun at someone in the parking.

Four teens were arrested and 3 airsoft guns were found.

On Saturday, one teen was arrested in Cleveland after a 911 call came in about juveniles passing around a gun. When police found the teen, he attempted to ditch the gun, which was a real .22 caliber pistol.

Airsoft and BB guns have been in the spotlight since 12-year-old Tamir Rice was shot and killed by a Cleveland police officer.

Rice had an airsoft pistol officers thought was real outside the Cudell Rec Center, and officers say as they approached Rice, he reached for the gun.
