Last updated on Wednesday, November 2, 2011

(AIKEN, S.C.)(AP) - South Carolina officials say a 10-year-old trick-or-treater pulled a handgun on a woman who joked that she’d steal his Halloween candy.

A 28-year-old woman told police she recognized some youngsters Monday evening and she joked she'd take their candy.

Police says a 10-year-old in the group said "no" and pointed the handgun at her.
The gun wasn't loaded but the boy had a clip of ammunition. He was taken to the police station and was turned over to his parents.

The boy's brother, who is also 10, told officials he also had a gun and both weapons were recovered by police. The boys got the guns from their grandfather without his permission.
