Riverdale police chased down and arrested a 15-year-old boy who allegedly fired numerous gunshots near an elementary school.
Police Lt. Casey Warren said officers responded about 5:15 p.m. Tuesday to 911 calls reporting gunshots in Riverdale Park, which adjoins a playground at Riverdale Elementary School.
The incident occurred outside normal school hours and no one was hurt, but when officers arrived they spotted the suspect and a foot chase ensued.
The youth was taken into custody, and officers confiscated a semi-automatic handgun and ammunition from him. The 15-year-old obtained the gun and the ammunition from home, Warren said Thursday.
