Two teens have been arrested after multiple neighbors turned them in for reportedly pointing a weapon around an apartment complex early Saturday morning.

In an arrest report, a neighbor at the Gable Hills Apartments in Sand Springs said she was scared and believed the gun to be "real" because it had a long black nose. Another woman said she woke up to gunshots and saw four men on another patio about 2 a.m. When she went outside, they pointed the gun in her direction and fired it, the report says.

Another witness told police one of the men pointed the gun at him and his family and fired two or three shots at them, according to the report.

All three witnesses identified the men who had the gun as Bradley Cole Wingo, 18, of McAlester, and James Clifford Schultz, 18, of Sand Springs.

When police arrived to the apartment complex off U.S. Highway 412, they stood outside a unit for 15 minutes, knocking and giving commands for the occupants to open the door, the report says.

When someone finally came to the door, police made the four men and two women inside get face down on the floor and handcuffed them.

After police asked where the gun was, one of the men directed him to an air pistol loaded with copper BBs that was behind a trash can in the kitchen, the report says.

One of the men reportedly told police, "It's just a BB gun; it's not even a real gun."

According to police, Wingo then said, "I pointed the gun at the pool."

Both Wingo and Schultz were arrested for pointing a weapon and booked into the Tulsa County jail.

According to police, "Schultz maintained his innocence, but due to him being positively identified by the victims," he was placed under arrest.
