WAYNESBORO, Va. (AP) - Waynesboro police say a teenager faces five charges after pointing a loaded gun at officers.

Media outlets report that no one was shot. The 16-year-old, whose name was not released, was charged with one felony and four misdemeanors.

According to police, several officers responded to a report of a mob of 15 to 20 people fighting Wednesday afternoon. A teenager who fled the scene on foot pulled a handgun from his waistband and pointed it at pursuing officers. Sgt. Brian Edwards says one officer drew his gun and could have fired, but did not.

The teen ditched the gun and was apprehended. He is charged with assault of a law enforcement officer, brandishing a firearm, obstruction of justice, carrying a concealed weapon and possession of a firearm by a juvenile.
