Teens Filming Action Movie Draw Police Response

Teenagers filming a video for school received a large police response after a watchful neighbor reported seeing one of the teens pointing a gun at another person at 5:09 p.m. Tuesday in the 2900 block of River Valley Road.

Police learned when they arrived that the teens were filming an action scene. They were advised to film in a remote area so as to not cause the public to fear.
