10-year old boy seen with gun in Illinois, shots fired

A boy who looked to be 10 years old was seen with a gun and arguing with teen boys, in the West Bluff area of Peoria, Illinois.  Shots were heard fired, but police weren't able to find the boys or confirm the shooting.

From the article:
A woman told police she heard gunshots in her West Bluff neighborhood Tuesday night after seeing a group of teenage males arguing and a young boy with a gun.
The witness, who reported the shots about 7:35 p.m. in the 800 block of West Columbia Terrace near Franklin-Edison Primary School, told police she saw a boy who appeared to be 10 years old with a gun before hearing shots fired a few minutes later.
Police searched the area but did not locate any victims, suspects or evidence of gunshots.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
