“Police surrounded the restaurant while the boys were still ordering their food and at least eight officers waited with guns drawn for the boys to come out.

“‘They had all types of guns out; AK-47[s] and stuff, it was crazy,’ said a witness.

“Police did not expect to see two teenagers coming out of the restaurant, with food in hand.

“‘They said they just wanted to have fun. These kids came out with masks on and we had guns drawn and it could have gone in a bad direction. Luckily things worked out,’ said Sgt. Kirk Zilke.”
