AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Police boarded a school bus in northeast Ohio and seized two toy cap guns from a 6-year-old boy they say was pointing them at other children.

The bus driver alerted police when he saw the first-grader with what turned out to be toy pistols Tuesday morning in Springfield Township near Akron.

Police tell The Akron Beacon Journal (http://bit.ly/1tgJeIn ) the child pointed the silver, Western-style cap guns at another child and threatened to shoot. The toy did not have any caps in it.

No children were injured, but police said some of them were shaken up.

Officers took the toy guns and turned the boy over to his parents. No charges were expected.
