U.S. Marshals pull gun on two boys who attack them during manhunt

U.S. Marshals were in Corpus Christi looking for a fugitive and approached a home where the man was known to frequent.  At the home was a 10-year old boy, John Paul Sotelo, who, according to the marshals, looked as if he was going to attack them with a shovel.  The boy's 15-year old brother, Joe Angel, then attacked the marshals as well, and the marshals responded by wrestling the boy to the ground.  Finally, an 18-year old friend of the boys jumped into the fight to.  In the end, the marshals pulled their guns and threatened the boys, brought the fight to an end, and then took the boys into detention.

The article and news footage didn't say why the boys attacked the marshals.

Apparently the man the marshals were looking for wasn't at the location at the time, but later turned himself in.
