AVON, Ind. – Four minors were arrested Thursday afternoon after one of them was spotted pointing a gun at a school bus.

Around 4:30 p.m. the Hendricks County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a person who was armed in the Wynnebrooke subdivision near 21st Street and Raceway Road.

Deputies say 4 juveniles were in a car and one of them pointed a gun at the caller who was familiar with the juvenile. They also may have pointed the gun at a nearby Avon school bus while it was parked and off-loading students.

The car left the area, but was later found by Hendricks County Deputies near U.S. 36 and Dan Jones Road. A short chase followed when the car drove away. Eventually, it hit a curb and all four juveniles tried to run away on foot. One of them was immediately detained and the other three were found during a search of the area.

Deputies later found the gun in question, and say the car they were driving was stolen out of Marion County.

Three of the juveniles, ages 14,15 and 15 were charged with resisting law enforcement. The fourth, a 16-year-old, was charged with resisting law enforcement, possession of stolen property, and driving without receiving a license. Charges related to the possession and pointing of the firearm could come later, says the Hendricks County Sheriff’s Office.
