Ferndale Police: Is This Gun Real Or Fake? [PHOTO]

FERNDALE (WWJ) – Was the gun pointed at people in Ferndale, real or fake?

Police already know the answer, but they tweeted a photo of a firearm and asked their followers if they could tell if the gun was real or fake?

Officers confiscated the weapon from a 14-year-old who was pointing it at someone in a city park. A witness called police about the situation, but also cautioned that the gun might be fake.

As it turns out, police say the weapon was an airsoft gun — but the orange tip at the end of the barrel, use to signify its not a real firearm, was colored black.

The kid with the gun avoided charges, as well as a deadly confrontation with responding officers.
