VANCOUVER – Two people were arrested Friday after pointing an Airsoft gun,
which led to the lockdown of a nearby department store.
Vancouver Police Commander Dave King said the three unidentified suspects
had bought the [airsoft] gun and removed an orange safety tip. The nearby J.C.
Penny store on Southeast Mill Plain was locked down after someone reported
seeing the [airsoft] gun being brandished.
One of the suspects put the [airsoft] gun in a trash can as police were
arriving. No one was hurt.
A 27-year-old man and 21-year-old woman were arrested on outstanding
warrants, according to King. A third man was not arrested.
