Teen With Lego Gun Triggers Police Operation in German Town
BERLIN (Sputnik) - A gun-toting teen caused alarm in the southern German town of Lindau, prompting a police operation that identified the weapon as a Lego toy, Bavarian police said Saturday.
A witness told the police he saw a young man in camouflage fatigues running up and down the street on Friday with what appeared to be a rifle.
It was not immediately clear whether the gun was real. Police sent patrol cars and federal officers who determined that the weapon was made of Lego bricks. The 15-year-old faces a fine.
