An 11-year-old Woodbridge boy faces charges after he allegedly pointed a BB gun at another 9-year-old student on local school property, Prince William County Police said. 

Police responded on Monday at 11:45 a.m. to Vaughn Elementary School, on York Drive in Woodbridge, to investigate an altercation that took place on Friday, around 4 p.m.

"During the encounter, the 11 year old displayed a BB gun and pointed it towards the other student," Perok said in a press release. "The school had already been dismissed for the day; however the altercation did occur on school property."

The boy did not fire any shots, Perok said. He is charged with brandishing a weapon on school property and assault and battery.
