VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. – A Florida deputy answering a call about the sound of gunshots, comes face-to-face with two young boys shooting a gun, near a dilapidated home.

According to the deputy, she encountered two 12-year-old boys, one of which pointed a gun at her patrol car.

The deputy says she got out of her car and ordered the boys to come out of the house or she would send in a police dog. Backup arrived and the officers later found a loaded gun and several shell casings.

The two boys were arrested and charged with discharging a firearm and possession of a firearm by a person under the age of 16. The boy who allegedly pointed the gun at the deputy faces an additional charge of aggravated assault with a firearm.
