    Two kids playing with a toy gun were cited on earlier this week after allegedly pointing the toy at passing cars.

    West Shore Regional Police say it happened in Lemoyne, Pa. -- a suburb of the state capital Harrisburg -- around 6:30 p.m. Monday. Pennlive.com reports the 12-year-old girl and 11-year-old boy pointed the plastic gun as cars that were slowing and stopping along Market Street.

    Investigators say the children were later found walking in nearby Wormleysburg after someone called police to report the incident.

    The children, who weren’t identified since they are minors, were cited for disorderly conduct. Their names have not been released.

    Toy guns have recently been caught in the crosshairs. A Pennsylvania girl was suspended earlier this school year after she allegedly threatened to shoot a fellow student with a pink bubble gun.
