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?
