(Woodland, WA)  --  Police in Woodland, Washington are defending their actions following a tense situation in which they pulled a gun on a 12-year-old child.  Police responded to an area off Lewis River Road on Christmas morning on reports of a man and a boy shooting a gun towards Lewis River.  Responding officers say the 12-year-old boy told them it was just a BB gun and then started to reach for it in his sweatshirt to show the officers, prompting them to draw their guns and take cover.  Police later found out it was just a BB gun, and the father and son were target shooting.  Woodland Police Sergeant James Keller tells KATU it would have been "devastating" to shoot a 12-year-old over a toy gun, adding that if the boy had pulled the BB gun out of his sweatshirt, it would have resulted in "the worst case scenario."
