Published:
PORTLAND, Ore. -- Portland police say two boys, ages 11 and 7, attempted to rob a woman with a loaded gun.
Police said that the 11-year-old boy had a .22 caliber loaded handgun when officers contacted him Saturday at the parking lot of the Freedom Foursquare Church.
Authorities said the boys approached a 22-year-old woman waiting for her parents in a car parked outside the church. She says the boys tried to carjack her. When she refused, the 11-year-old boy showed her the gun and told her to give them her phone and money or they would shoot her. She drove away and contacted police.
Because of their age officers placed the boys in their family's custody.
Detectives are investigating how the boys obtained a gun.
