    Three boys, ages 10, 13 and 14, are charged with pointing a fake gun at people on the street in the Tioga section of Philadelphia.

    Today, the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office announced the boys are charged with harassment, disorderly conduct, possession of an instrument of crime and conspiracy.

    The incident was captured on surveillance video at 16th and Ontario Streets on April 22. On the video, you can see the youngest of the boys, wearing a backpack, red t-shirt and shorts, walking up to two girls and pointing the gun.

    A second boy takes the gun away and points it at another group of kids walking towards him.

    Two of the boys are accused of pointing the same plastic gun at a U.S. Marine on the 3300 block of N. 16th Street. That man called 911and alerted police to what happened.

    Last Friday, NBC10 was there as the 10-year-old boy turned himself into police, escorted by his parents. They questioned and released him.

    The three boys will appear in court for a detention hearing this afternoon.
