Toy airsoft gun lands men in trouble

Two men from Chicago were arrested Monday after one of them entered a dorm room with a toy gun and the other one hid it during a police investigation.

Fayette police were called to Upper Iowa University for a report of a man with a gun. The student who reported it said the man had a black pistol in his waistband. Authorities secured the area and later identified Sheldon McCullough as the man who had the gun.

McCullough was arrested, along with his roommate Mitchel Smith, who police said concealed the gun after the incident. Police later realized the gun was an Airsoft pistol. It looked nearly identical to a real gun, aside from an orange tip on the barrel.

At this time, no further information about the incident is available.
