Malcolm King Park - teen with handgun?

Not sure if this was worth "calling in" to the police or not so wanted to get some opinions? While walking in MK Park yesterday in late afternoon, passed a teen who was lingering on one of the bridges that cross Muddy Branch. He was leaning over the railing while repeatedly aiming and clicking what looked like a silver pistol. When it "clicked", a small orange plastic nub popped out the top. It looked a little too sophisticated to be just a toy, but it's not out of the question. I also do not know guns, or if this could have been a real empty pistol? As I had to pass by him or walk a mile out of my way to get home, I asked him if he would put it away while we passed him because it was scaring me. He complied, but immediately started again as soon as I was clear of him. Any thoughts of what he was doing or if this warrants a call to the authorities if it happens again?
