CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland police say they confiscated a gun, a stun gun and a knife from two boys after a woman spotted a 7-year-old trying to load bullets into a gun magazine outside a home.

WEWS-TV (http://bit.ly/1LjbmHO ) reports the woman looked out a window, saw the boy with two others, approached them and demanded the gun magazine. Police say the boy handed it to her along with a bag containing a pistol.

He told officers that the gun belonged to his mother's boyfriend and that he took it from a mantel.

Officers searched the children and found a 12-year-old boy in the group had a stun gun and two bullets, and a large knife in his sock.

The station reports the boys were taken into custody and then released to their mothers.
