STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Stamford police say they arrested a 14-year-old boy who allegedly pulled out a fake shotgun from his gym bag at a crowded restaurant and scared the patrons.

Police told The Advocate of Stamford   that the teen brandished a plastic replica of a sawed-off shotgun outside Remo’s Brick Oven Pizza Co. on Bedford Street Wednesday afternoon as customers were eating at outdoor tables and a number of other people were on the sidewalk.

Authorities say the incident caused a panic but the restaurant owner was able to take a picture of the teen holding the gun.

The teen was charged with breach of peace and released to his parents. His name wasn’t released because of his age.
