Metro police are looking for a van and its two passengers after one of the men reportedly pointed a gun at two elementary school girls Friday morning.
The alleged incident happened between 7:30 and 7:45 a.m. on Colemont Drive as the students walked to Cole Elementary School.
Police said the girls were walking with three of their friends when they said a silver or light-colored van with tinted windows and a company logo on the side approached. The students said the van’s passenger, who was wearing a black hoodie and a black mask, pointed a pistol at the two girls, ages 7 and 8, and said, “Trick or Treat.”
The students ran to a home on Gillespie Drive where a parent called police. The van was described as having ladders on the top and was last seen driving on Colemont Drive.
Police ask anyone with information on the van to call the South Precinct at 862-7744 or Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.
Citizens can also send an electronic tip to Crime Stoppers by texting the word “CASH” along with their message to 274637 (CRIMES) or online at www.nashvillecrimestoppers.com.
