Edmonds police responded Wednesday morning to a report of several people with an assault rifle in the 7-11 parking lot on 76th Avenue West near 212th, near Edmonds-Woodway High School. The caller said they were recklessly waving the gun, police said.

Officers arrived and detained the subjects at gun point, recovering what police described as “a very realistic BB gun.”

“This is a good example of some very poor judgment on their part,” Edmonds police noted in a post on their Facebook page.
