Dallas officers concerned about toy guns

DALLAS — Twice this week in Far North Dallas, police have drawn their weapons on people who turned out to be carrying toy guns. One of the cases involved a 15-year-old boy, and the incidents have raised officer concerns about the dangers of such situations.

"It's summer, it's hot, these kids are out here with these guns that look real," Dallas police Lt. Elaine Barnard said. "When officers go to the scene, that's what they see – they see a gun that looks real. So they have to react to that."
