A 12-year-old boy in New York City allegedly pulled a gun, demanding a chicken nugget from a classmate, police reported.

After seeing the girl at McDonald’s on Tuesday, he asked her for a chicken nugget, but she refused, WPIX reported.

The boy allegedly followed the girl to “the 103rd St. No. 6-train station, pointed a gun at her head and demanded a McNugget again.” She pushed the gun away and “told the boy to leave her alone,” reports WPIX.

Police said “she boarded the train unharmed” and witnessed “the boy showing the gun to another child on the train.”

The boy was taken into custody by police Wednesday “after the girl reported the incident to school officials.”
