CORVALLIS, Ore. -- A 16-year-old is in jail after police said he stole a gun, shot a moving car’s tire and jumped over the Corvallis Montessori School's fence.

Corvallis police responded to NW 29th Street and NW Grant Avenue at about 11:30 p.m. Monday after a 22-year-old Corvallis resident reported that two youths may have thrown something in the roadway, causing his left rear tire to deflate. No suspects were found at the time.

Then, at midnight, the caller said the teenager had returned, brandishing a gun and demanding cigarettes.

The suspect, a Yamhill County resident, ran north through the back parking lot of the First Alternative Natural Foods store, threw the gun over the fence of the Montessori School and then jumped over, police said.

He was found by police and arrested. A Glock 9mm handgun was found in the playground of the school. Police said the gun was taken from a vehicle in the 1000 block of NW 31st Street and used to shoot the caller’s tire.

The teen faces charges of first-degree attempted robbery, unlawful use of a weapon, unlawful possession of a firearm, menacing, interfering with a peace officer, reckless endangering, second-degree criminal trespass, first-degree theft and unlawful entry into a motor vehicle.

He is in the Linn-Benton Detention Center.
