WOODSTOCK – A 16-year-old Wisconsin boy was arrested Thursday night for showing a gun at a gathering of teenagers, authorities said.

The boy, from Arkdale, Wis., is charged with Possession of a Firearm by Persons Under the Age of 18 and Possession of a Firearm with No Firearms Identification Card - Non Eligible. Both are Class 4 felonies.

The Woodstock Police Department responded at 10:50 p.m. for the incident in the 500 block of N. Madison St., according to a news release from the department.

The boy was flashing the gun at a "gathering of underage individuals," Deputy Chief John Lieb said.
