Teen with gun stops Nelson bus


A Stoke bus was stopped by Police after a teenage boy boarded the bus armed with what looked like a gun.

The teenager hopped on a bus near Tainui St and Main Rd Stoke around 12.45pm today.

A police spokesperson says a nearby officer saw the teenager get on the bus with what appeared to be a gun, he was unsure wether it was an imitation or not.

“When he searched the teenager he discovered it was a beebee gun.”

The young man was asked to empty out the pellets in his gun and was being talked to by the officer.
