A realistic toy handgun almost got a young person shot this week in St Thomas.
If your kids have toy guns around the house, you may want to listen up.
Police were called out to a report of young people playing on a hill with a gun.
As it turned out, it was just a toy but the situation was still extremely dangerous.
Police are trained to respond with force to anything that appears capable of serious injury or death like a weapon.
They say toy guns should only be used in a controlled and supervised environment.
