911 Caller Thought Girl With Gun 'A Joke' 4-19-2011

HIGHLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich.An employer at a suburban Detroit market told a 911 operator that she initially thought that a young girl pointing a gun at her was "a joke."
The woman called 911 in Oakland County on Friday to report the attempted robbery of the Country Lake Food Center in Highland Township, about 30 miles northwest of Detroit. She said the girl, who is 12, looked about 16 years old.
The woman told the dispatcher a store employee was holding the girl down, and she was crying.
The Associated Press obtained a copy of the 911 call Tuesday from the sheriff.
She faces juvenile charges and is accused of using a loaded, stolen handgun to try to rob the store.
She's being held at the Oakland County Children's Village awaiting an April 26 hearing.
