GLENDALE — A 19-year-old Bayside man has been charged after shooting a BB gun at Bayshore Town Center on Monday evening, September 18th. Colton Webb faces one count of disorderly conduct, use of a dangerous weapon.
According to the criminal complaint, Glendale police received multiple 911 calls about a man on the parking deck/roof of Mongolian Grill holding a semi-automatic handgun and firing shots at a county bus.
Police responded to the scene and saw the firearm recoil two to three times. Officers began to approach Webb, who hid behind a ledge. Webb was found standing next to a vehicle that was later found out to be registered to Webb’s father. When Webb saw the officers, he surrendered and was taken into custody.
The complaint said the officers searched the vehicle and found a black .45 caliber replica 1911 BB gun, a bag of silver-colored BBs, and a receipt for both the BB gun and the BBs.
Webb admitted that earlier that day, he purchased the BB gun located in the vehicle, and was using it to fire at several aluminum cans he had arranged on the parking deck located above the Mongolian Grill.
Webb also admitted that “doing this was not a smart move” — and that even up close the gun looks real, and might have made people observing him to believe he was “trying to kill somebody.”
