Police: Girl, 12, Tries To Rob Store With Hot Gun 4-18-2011

Prosecutors have decided to bring juvenile charges against a 12-year-old girl accused of using a loaded, stolen handgun to try to rob a suburban Detroit store.
Oakland County Assistant Prosecutor Paul Walton on Sunday told The Oakland Press of Pontiac that the case will be handled as a juvenile matter.
The sheriff's department says a magistrate handling the case raised the issue of whether the girl would be charged as an adult,but adult charges weren't sought. An adult charge of armed robbery can bring up to life behind bars.
Authorities say the robbery attempt happened Friday night at Country Lake Market in Highland Township, about 30 miles northwest of Detroit.
They say store employees were able to subdue the girl and hold her until deputies arrived.
