Teen arrested with shotgun

LAWTON, Okla._A Lawton teen is behind bars after he was arrested with a shotgun. Police said they received multiple calls of someone walking near Tomlinson Middle School with a weapon.

They searched a neighboring apartment complex and he was spotted by a resident in a parking lot across the street. That resident, Orlando Bennett, said when he saw the gun he was thinking the worst.

"I’m assuming he was going to shoot, because he was mad at someone so he was going to take it out because you don't walk around with a rifle every day," Bennett said.

Police said the rifle was inoperable. The 17-year-old was arrested and will likely be charged with disturbing the peace.
