Utica, NY (WIBX) - A Utica teenager was arrested following an incident with a gun earlier this week. Officials say they got a call about the 17-year-old hiding behind a wooded area of a basketball court, aiming the weapon at another person. After an investigation, it was determined that the weapon was actually an Air Soft Gun that resembled an assault rifle.

The young man, whose name was not released due to his age, was taken to jail and charged with Criminal Possession of a Weapon and Menacing.
