Seattle police have arrested a 17-year-old boy in West Seattle after he was spotted walking in a park with a sawed-off shotgun.
Several people called 911 after the armed teen was spotted with a group of seven to 10 youths at Roxhill Park, 2850 S.W. Roxbury St., around 12:30 p.m. When police arrived they seized the teen’s 12-gauge shotgun, which was concealed in the leg of his pants, police spokesman Mark Jamieson said.
The serial number of the weapon had been removed. The teen was also carrying a star-shaped badge, similar to a sheriff’s office badge, police said. The teen was booked into the King County Youth Service Center for a weapons violation.
The other youths with him were interviewed and released.
