Police responded in force to a report of someone waving a gun in the back of a minivan near Chino, but the culprit turned out to be a child with a toy weapon.

A concerned motorist called authorities Friday afternoon and deputies pulled the vehicle over at about on State Route 71, with a half dozen
squad cars converging on the scene.

Sheriff's Sgt. R. Causey says the motorist thought it was a real gun, but deputies could tell it was a toy.

There were two adults and two children in the vehicle.

No arrests were made.
