KINSTON, N.C. (WNCT)- There is a cell phone case on the market that could easily be mistaken for a hand gun. The device is currently sold online. It has the butt of a handgun, and resembles a semi-automatic weapon. Kinston public safety advises parents to not allow their children to purchase the case.
“If they were to pull that out and point it at us or have it, anything like that, it’s a tragedy waiting to happen, and it’s pretty stupid,” Woody Spencer of Kinston public safety said.
Officers want people to be aware of the phone case and refrain from buying it.
