The Oak Ridge Police Department responded to a call of a rifle being pointed at cars passing by on Highland Avenue on Tuesday afternoon, but officers determined the gun was a BB gun.
The ORPD received the call at about 3:02 p.m. Tuesday.
When they arrived at the house, several adults and juveniles exited the home and came to officers, the ORPD said.
The rifle was determined to be a BB gun on the front porch, the ORPD said. One juvenile admitted to having it in his hands while on the front porch, police said.
The BB gun was not pointed at any people or vehicles, police said, and the BB gun was not loaded and is broken. No charges will be filed.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
