Four black teens were fundraising for their high school football team. A white woman held them at gunpoint.
Police arrived at Kelly's house Wednesday, Aug. 7 at around 10 a.m., responding to a report of "suspicious persons," to find the four boys on the ground, with Kelly, who is white, standing over them with a gun...
... According to the police report, Kelly's neighbor said she could hear the boys playing outside, but said "nothing out of the ordinary" was taking place. Another neighbor said the boys appeared to be playing hide-and-seek and laughing in the street.
In their statement, the boys, who are all between the ages of 15 and 16, described being chased by a dog near Kelly's house. The owner then approached the boys and apologized, promising the dog would not bite. They laughed about the situation and played with the dog before continuing to Kelly's house.
The boys said they were "scared to even talk" to Kelly after she called them liars and threatened to shoot them if they moved from the ground. They said she lectured them after police arrived and insisted they look her in the eyes and shake her hand.
Wynne School District Superintendent Carl Easley said students participate in fundraising "every year," but the district is considering stopping door-to-door fundraisers...
