Police in North Carolina are searching for a teenager who they say robbed a nine-year-old boy at gunpoint while the child was selling lemonade.
Deputies responded to a report of an armed robbery involving a 9-year-old boy selling lemonade.
The boy was at his lemonade stand at a roundabout in St. John's Forest development about 3 p.m. Saturday when a teenager wearing a camouflage hat walked up, pointed a gun at the child's stomach and demanded he hand over the money he'd earned, Union County police said.
Deputies say they located a trail in the woods where a camo hat, a black colored BB handgun and stolen metal tin were recovered.
