BB-gun sale puts Chicago store in cops' cross hairs after officer involved shooting


Making good on warnings that BB-guns are illegal in Chicago, police have busted a Northwest Side store owner for selling one of the plastic weapons to a 13-year-old boy, authorities said Monday.

William Garriga, 55, owner of Divas Videos and Music at 4758 W. Belmont, was cited for not having a license to sell firearms and for illegally selling BB-guns within city limits.

Garriga could face a fine of $250 to $500 for each violation and his business license could be in jeopardy. Police said he sold at least nine BB-guns.
