Cops weren't out looking for blood you idiot. Nothing would've happen if the teen didn't decide to act like a thug. Yes, I said a thug...

The kid didn't have to act like a thug all he had to do was turn and face the officers without dropping the guns barrel, or the gun it's self, which might have had enough plastic in it to break.

This teenager was carrying a replica assault rifle complete with replica 30 round magazine, but without the day-glow insert on the barrel that indicates it is a replica instead of an actual weapon.
The distinctive day-glow part of the barrel that would have told the deputy that it was not an actual rifle had been removed.

A pellet gun/air rifle IS a weapon. When I was about the boys age maybe a shade older my father got both me and my younger brother air rifles, mine was a .177 caliber my brothers was more for hunting, and was a .22 caliber air rifle.
