Teen charged with menacing in BB gun incident

A 17-year-old Sheridan-Parkside resident was arrested after police responded to the report of a man with a gun at a gas station shortly after midnight Sunday.

Police said they were called to the gas station on Fillmore Avenue and East Ferry Street, where they learned that two men were menaced by someone with a gun. After viewing surveillance video, police arrested the teenage boy and also recovered a BB gun resembling the black handgun that had been dispayed.

The teen was charged with second-degree menacing and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon.
