Teenager arrested after being caught with loaded handgun on Midland Avenue

A suspicious person call led to an arrest and the recovery of a loaded handgun at about 6:40 pm on the 2400 block of Midland Avenue, according to Syracuse Police.

Officers were called to the scene by a neighbor saying a man with a gun was seen behind a house on the 2400 block of Midland Avenue. Officers started checking backyards when they found and detained a 15-year-old teenager who had a loaded handgun.

The teen was charged with criminal possession of a weapon, and will answer the charge in family court at a later date.

His name was not released due to his age.
