Chicago — Two juvenile boys, riding the Red Line in downtown Chicago at 1 a.m., were carrying a rifle and a pistol when Chicago police officers stopped them for smoking on a train car, according to CPD.
The cops were patrolling the State-Lake platform early Thursday when they saw the boys, ages 15 and 16, smoking together on a standing train, Chicago police said.
While interviewing the teens, officers discovered that the younger boy was carrying a rifle and the other was armed with a “ghost gun” pistol.
Both boys are charged with felony gun violations.
Police did not release any other details about the teens because they are juveniles.
