At 3:38 p.m., the victims were walking home from school when they were approached by two suspects. One suspect pulled out a black semi automatic handgun and pointed it at one of the victims and stated "I should smack you with this." The other victim stated he stepped forward and attempted to stop the assault. The suspect pointed the gun at him and stated "I should smack you with this too." The suspect asked them if they wanted to "do this" and the other suspect demanded the other suspect "leave it alone." Both suspects walked away. They were taken into custody later.
