He then released a dog, which chased the boys. The boys then went to their parents, who called 911.
VanDyke claimed the gun was unloaded, but the boys did not know.
From an article and news video:
It all started when 7-year-old Angel Martinez said he got off at the wrong bus stop. Along with two 9-year-old friends he took a gravel driveway on 22nd Avenue in Forest Grove thinking it was a shortcut home..
"This guy told us to get out, and he pointed a gun and let his dog go, and the dog was chasing me," Martinez said.
Police say VanDyke told them to get off his property then he pointed an unloaded .22-caliber handgun at them.
Martinez' mother, Evelia Vasquez, said her husband went back to the house to talk to VanDyke who said VanDyke told him he thought the kids were older and that the gun was unloaded.
