Four young teen boys wield gun and beat up homeless couple in Detroit

A homeless husband and wife in Detroit, Michigan, were threatened by four teen boys, around the ages of 12 or 13, who were wielding a gun.  The boys then beat up the couple.

From the article:
Oakland County Sheriff’s deputies said the incident happened at 5 p.m. Sunday when a homeless couple — a 29-year-old wife and 30-year-old husband — were approached on Baldwin Street by four young black teens, estimated at 13 to 14 years old.
“The suspects made comments about the victims not belonging in the neighborhood,” the Sheriff’s Department said in a press release, adding, “One of the suspects produced what appeared to be a handgun and pointed it at the female victim.”
Another one of the suspects then began punching the female victim’s face, while a third teen began punching the male victim. The suspects eventually fled the scene before deputies arrived.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
