11-year old boy threatens 9-year old in Virginia School with BB gun

An 11-year old boy brought a realistic-looking BB gun to school with him, at the Fred Lynn Middle School in Woodbridge, Virginia.  He then used the gun to threaten a 9-year old boy.

From an article:

Prince William County police said they were called to Vaughn Elementary School in Woodbridge on Monday to investigate an altercation between an 11-year-old boy and a 9-year-old boy that occurred on school grounds after school hours on Friday. Police said that during the altercation the 11-year-old, who is a sixth-grader at Fred Lynn Middle School, displayed a BB gun to the 9-year-old and pointed it toward him. 
The altercation occurred outside the school building but on school property. Police said no shots were fired and no injuries were reported. 
The 11-year-old juvenile has been charged with brandishing a weapon on school property and assault and battery.

Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
