Early Sunday morning, at approximately 12:36 AM, Leesburg officers were covertly monitoring activity in the 300 Block of East Magnolia Street due to recent complaints of criminal activity. While concealed, they observed two vehicles enter the parking area, turning off their lights prior to arrival (blacked out). The vehicles then circled the lot and parked with several subjects exiting and conversing with several other people in the area. Officers continually observed the activity from approximately 50 yards away, when a male entered the back seat of one of the cars and retrieved a black rifle. The male first started waving the rifle around and then assumed a low-ready tactical position. Naturally, this prompted the officers to immediately converge on the area. Observing the officers, the male quickly retreated inside a nearby apartment before returning back outside without the rifle. During that time, several people were detained, including the male in question, as officers urgently searched for the rifle and quickly located it behind the apartment the male had entered. After closer examination, the rifle was determined to be a Cross Man Arms BB gun/air rifle that was heavily modified using black tape and other materials to make it look real. The air rifle had an extended stock, a fake extended magazine, and there were no markings signifying it as a fake or toy. The rifle was confiscated by the officers after no one claimed ownership and all persons were then released at the scene. This was the second time in four days that our officers’ encountered young adults brandishing what appeared to be authentic rifles in an aggressive manner. Fortunately, neither incident resulted in a lethal encounter with law enforcement, however we cannot guarantee that outcome every time. Having said that, we implore people to demonstrate common sense before one of these incidents ends in tragedy...Thank you!
