RACINE, Wis. — The Racine Police Department said they have a 14-year-old in custody after officers discovered he was in possession of a "ghost gun."
Officials said the teen had a 9mm pistol, but it was not a normal pistol. According to Racine police, the gun included a full auto-selector switch and a 40-round magazine.
"Ghost guns do not have serial numbers and are untraceable firearms that are typically assembled at home from kits bought online," Racine police said in a post on Facebook.
To emphasize the seriousness of the situation, Racine police clarified that the 14-year-old was in possession of a fully automatic ghost gun.
"This is the reality Racine Police Officers are dealing with on a daily basis. If you see something, say something!"
